July 2021 E-Newsletter

A Message from our Executive Director



Welcome to the July E-Newsletter,

2020/21 was a challenging year for the financial services industry. Still, despite the challenging operating environment under COVID – 19, RMA Australia has continued to deliver our webinar events monthly, sometimes bi-monthly.

In July, we ran two webinars. We took a different approach with the first webinar, Linkedin for Risk Professionals – Connect, engage and grow your career. The webinar was designed to meet our objective of supporting effective risk management education and training. It focused on improving your professional presence and profile on Linkedin.

Our second webinar, hosted by CBA, showcased why privacy is one of the most important social issues of our time. We thank Greer Harris, Group Chief Privacy Officer, CBA and Andre Castaldi, Director, Assessments Section, Regulation and Strategy, Office of the Australian Information Commissioner, for their expert commentary on managing privacy.

Thank you to everyone who is using our new LIVE webinar rating system. This feature replaces the post-event surveys, so make sure you tell us what you think of our content, speakers and webinar structure. Your feedback is important to us. We encourage you to provide it at all our webinars and events.

FOLLOW RMA AUSTRALIA on LinkedIn to stay up to date with the latest industry, event and COVID-19 updates.

Spotlight on: Emerging Risk Professionals

This month we shine the spotlight on our Emerging Risk Professionals. A Group has been set up to build an active community of energised emerging risk professionals (ERP) to share ideas, innovative practices and fresh perspectives on risk management. This encourages the ERPs to look beyond their everyday role, including learning from industry leaders. (NB: Although it is expected that an “Emerging Risk Professional” is aged under 35 or otherwise new to the risk industry, this is only a guide). The Group were lucky to get a briefing from RMA Australia Secretary Westpac’s Catherine Thrum at their meeting this month. For more information on the ERP Group, please get in touch.
