Creating Viral Content While Being A Fincrime Compliance Specialist

Welcome to the episode that has it all. Episode 3 of “WE WERE ON A BREAK” - Ross Voice. The series where the host, Stephen Brent Sargeant talks to industry professionals during the Corona Virus (COVID-19) quarantine and gains industry insights and expertise. In this episode, we sit down with one of the most decorated Financial Crime Compliance specialist in Canada, Jennifer Ford-Smith. She was the Project lead for one of the largest remediation teams and has worked for top tier financial institutions and consultancy firms in Canada. Jennifer talks about her journey in obtaining subject matter expertise and also providing creative content in a mostly conservative industry of Compliance. She talks about what skills new AML professionals need to thrive and the type of social media etiquette that builds meaningful industry connections. And what is a conversation with Jen, without talking about her need for speed and passion for racing cars. If you are needing mentorship in the Compliance industry than this episode has you covered. Enjoy and don’t forget to provide feedback, share with a friend or leave a review.
