Praise for The Compliance Revolution

"Staying ahead of the change curve is essential for maintaining a successful and viable business. With the paradigm shifts we are experiencing in regulatory regimes and resultant systems of governance, this book is timely and offers highly perceptive road maps for organisations and their compliance functions to respond in a sustainable manner that engenders trust and confidence. David writes with honesty and directness that is refreshing and consistent with the standards of ethical practices he advocates."
Vicky Kubitscheck, CRO and Compliance Director, Police Mutual (insurance) Group; author of Integrated Assurance: Risk Governance Beyond Boundaries

" David Jackman was in the forefront of the movement to introduce an ethical dimension into the compliance sphere. Many a corporate failure would have been prevented if boards and senior management weighed the ethical implications of their decisions. The Compliance Revolution makes an important contribution by explaining how ethics, regulation and compliance can co–exist. The book breaks new ground by offering practical guidance, tools and examples to ensure that boards are driven by ethical considerations as well. It is a much–needed publication for board directors, compliance and ethics professionals, senior managers and even regulators."
Dayanath Jayasuriya, President′s Counsel; former Chairman, Securities and Exchange Commission and Insurance Board of Sri Lanka

"This is a brave attempt to posit a theory of change for the compliance function. The scene is financial services, and compliance with regulation, but the theory and practice will apply to any sector and to the additional tasks of a compliance function. Whether you wholly agree with the over–arching thesis or not, this book will help you develop your own theory of compliance, its role, and how it must change or evolve to succeed."
Robin Ford, Regulatory consultant; former Executive Commissioner British Columbia Securities Commission; former Chief Counsel, Insurance UK Financial Services Authority

"David has made the abstract concepts simple and easy to grasp. It′s both thought provoking and inspirational for those intending to or are pursuing a career in compliance. There are fundamental truths which I fully agree ′when ethics are real and effective, the quality of compliance will be high.′ The power of a right compliance culture cannot be underestimated. David highlighted succinctly the pitfalls to avoid and how important continuous stakeholder engagement is for an organisation to maintain the right compliance mindset. And, for the compliance professionals, how necessary it is to be clued in to the operations."
Adeline Koh, Head of Regulatory & Compliance for Asia Pacific region of a global insurance group
