Not blogging tomorrow…the Compliance Briefing beckons

Its Wednesday evening and I sit here finalising the materials for a Compliance course I am moderating for the UK Investor Relations Society tomorrow. Since it is a full day event, I will not blog tomorrow, as I normally do.

This course runs every 3 or 4 months, and many of the attendees are planning to take the IRS’s excellent Certificate in Investor Relations examination. Which is a thorough test of candidates knowledge of the regulations surrounding IR.

Which brings me – not before time I hear you cry – to the point. Every time we run this course, it needs to be fundamentally re-crafted. Such is the slew of new rules, new case studies, new interpretations, studies into best practices and the rest that, in this case, the materials from the May event are useless.

Pity the poor IR professional trying to keep on top of it all. Now where’s that Powerpoint….
