Annual Report 2018

Live events flourished and our own community podcast launched giving even greater voice to our community of experts and inspiring emerging talent.

A MESSAGE FROM

KIMBERLEY COLE

When I think about what makes Risky Women special, it pretty clearly comes down to how we as a community enhance the debate with a female viewpoint. I spend a lot of time talking to Risky Women and I love gaining their insight and perspective.

The live events continue to flourish and you tell me that connecting with peers continues to be an important way to engage.  It has been a great year across the globe with the Refinitv Regulatory Summits continuing to provide a platform to bring Risky Women together to discuss hot topics in the industry.  From London to Japan we have put a spotlight on Financial Crime, the global Regulatory landscape, privacy and looking at new areas such as crypto.  Adding fun elements, like the series in the USA titled “Don’t give up the wine list” thanks to RareCat Wines, let our Risky Women increase their wine knowledge and showed how to use the wine list as a business tool!  In Hong Kong, our More than Musical evening was a highlight.  Joined by two opera singers in an up-close performance we saw first-hand how one woman is disrupting the status quo with a new format of opera to increase and extend the appeal to a younger and more diverse audience. Disruption is everywhere and offers so many opportunities!

The caliber of speakers remains inspiring and I want to thank them all. Sam Mostyn was wonderful in Sydney with a fabulous look at her career and how taking risks was rewarded. As Sam said, “The more Risks I took the luckier I got”.  The scope of topics and expert opinions is a point of celebration. In Japan, we were privileged to have Royanne Doi and Yumiko Murakami share the challenges and opportunities of doing business in Japan which offered some great learning for all.  That’s just a few of the highlights with more contained on the following pages of this report.

Collaboration and partnership have always been a strength of the network and joining forces with other powerhouse networks has added new opportunities for support. From TEDx Tinhau in Hong Kong to Every Woman in London we are always looking to extend our connections.  Another first for Risky Women was achieved when Catherine Fox and Dr Kristin Ferguson included Risky Women in their book WomenKind – Unlocking the power of supporting Women.  Definitely worth a read!

The most exciting achievement this year was the launch of Risky Women Radio.  Our own community podcast channel giving even greater voice to our community of experts and inspiring emerging talent.  It has not only been an immense amount of fun, but the stories and new ideas continue to inspire me, and I hope you too!  Take a look below at the amazing risk and compliance professionals we featured in Series 1.  From Regulators and a special series with ASIC’s Commissioner and senior women to Government and Regulatory affairs with Catherine Simmons and Rebecca Terner-Lentchner who kicked off the series we have had a ball.  Sharing career journeys, expert opinion and their rants and revelations it’s a great listen.

Thank you again to all the Risky Women across the globe and also all of our listeners and allies.  2019 promises more change in the regulatory landscape and further disruption with opportunities to change and grow.  Risky Women is no exception so get ready for a new look for Risky Women and more ways to celebrate Risky Women across the globe!

As always, I love to hear from you and understanding what else we can do to help shape the discussion and connect you globally.

Best Wishes,
Kimberley
