Over the last several years I have endeavoured to change the way we think and do compliance. Perhaps, a big hairy audacious goal (BHAG) as some might say. Others might even call it a fools errand.
To be honest, it is hasn't been easy and it continues to be an uphill battle. As essential as compliance is, it is not the number one priority of things to improve or excel at for that matter.
What has helped is knowing that I am not alone. There are others who are doing amazing things to help transform compliance. I have had the good fortune to connect with and work with some of you and look forward to meeting more in the months and years to come.
What has amazed me is when I hear from someone who tells me that they have followed me on social media for a while, loved what we do, and have put the principles of lean compliance into practice to improve compliance in their organization. All I can say is, WOW.
This is not an isolated case.
I found your posts and the breadth of information you provide on compliance and risk topics to be particularly helpful in expanding my personal knowledge, as I am relatively early in my career and doing my best to learn on my own. I look forward to learning more from the generous amount of information you share freely on this platform. Grateful is an understatement.

It's not always possible to know how much we impact other people. However, sometimes you do hear and it reminds you why you work so hard to make a difference.
Don’t underestimate the impact you are making.
Good things take time, Great things take a little longer.
Don’t give up.
I am grateful to all those that have written to us and those who have not but have found our work helpful in supporting their compliance journey. Thank you for helping make our journey worthwhile.
