“Another outstanding and beautifully organized conference. My only regret is that I did not have the budget to bring all my team. Those who attended came back fully energized and ready to tackle the GRC challenges. There is no doubt that the ACC conference is an excellent, renewing, revitalizing event. Above all, it was an amazing and emotional feeling to be surrounded by so many professionals from the financial sector and regulators.

Meanwhile, as the Chairperson and moderator of the conference, I can say that the level of interaction and enthusiasm on the side of delegates have been remarkable.”
