Programme Outline

The Programme in Outline

There is a core curriculum within which there are some elective options on two of the days. This allows participants from countries that have financial centres to focus on topics that have specific relevance to those areas, whilst others can choose topics that are also relevant to their needs.

The topics covered will include:

  • New approaches to Risk Management
  • New perspectives and insights into Regulatory Practices
  • Anti-money laundering/ countering the financing of terrorism
  • Understanding and preventing criminal activity in the financial sector
  • The scope for regulatory collaboration among small countries
  • The International Assessment Process
  • Fintech Overview and implications for Regulators
  • Tax Policy and perspectives on transparency
  • Debt Management
  • Cash Management and alternative investment strategies
  • Medium Term Expenditure Frameworks
  • Budgeting
  • The challenges involved in implementing change in government
  • Building proactive and effective partnerships with international bodies
  • Management and project delivery challenges in public service
  • Leadership
  • Negotiation skills

Equally important will be the connecting of these topics to the personal challenges on which each of the participants will be working, culminating in three days of developing negotiation skills aimed at improving the effectiveness of any solutions to those challenges developed during the two weeks and developing an action plan for implementation on return to work.  The primary challenge is that action plans should be operationally practical and useful.
