  • Why Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Should Not Be a Tick Box Exercise Recorded: Aug 20 2012 30 mins
    Michelle Hoskin, Standards International Ltd
    As owners of regulated businesses financial advisers have so much to think about. So many rules and procedures to follow, many of which are imposed upon us! For many we do only what is absolutely necessary and sadly disaster recovery and business continuation planning is often approached as a tick box exercise.

    To help you understand all of the risks that you and your business may at some point face, thinking outside of the box, Michelle will:

    1.Give you a whistle stop tour through BS 25999 – Business Continuity Management
    2.Challenge your thinking to realise and appreciate the many risks you and your business currently face
    3.Understand the key steps that you can take to reduce and even eliminate the impacts if realised
  • Create and Lead a 21st Century Support Team Recorded: Apr 30 2012 41 mins
    Michelle Hoskin, Business Development Director, Standards International Ltd
    Financial services is one of the most technically trained and talented professions in the world but still, very little support is given on how to run and manage a ‘best practice business’ and as such many professional advisers and planners continue to suffer from the same day-to-day challenges with debilitating effects:

    •A severe lack of practice management guidelines, operational procedures and house style
    •Under-resourced, inadequately skilled and poorly trained support staff
    •Poor team/people management, leadership and development skills
    •Inefficient workflow and task management methods and systems
    •Ineffective time and diary management.

    To help you eliminate or even better prevent these challenges happening in the first place, Michelle will share with you 2 of her 5 proven principles for perfection which will help you to:

    1.Design and build a unique team which is plentifully resourced, highly trained and strategically developed

    2.Create a Together Everyone Achieves More (TEAM) culture and benefit from your team’s hidden desire to increase their responsibilities through a concept called Receptive Delegation™
  • Information Security – Getting IFAs Ahead of the Game! Recorded: Jan 30 2012 30 mins
    Michelle Hoskin, Business Development Director, Standards International Ltd
    You should never underestimate the value of the information that you are responsible for protecting and although we don’t think it, our client and business information is an asset like any other therefore it is essential that we all put the protocols and processes in place to safely and securely collect it, use it, store it and destroy it!

    Failure to appreciate the importance and relevance of this will result in you being a prime target for computer-assisted fraud, espionage and computer hacking.

    Financial planners remain constantly under threat from many sources. These can be internal, external, accidental, or malicious and with the increased use of new technology to store, transmit, and retrieve information, we are all open to increased numbers and types of threats.

    A simple unintentional act of negligence could set your firm back with a hefty fine, not to mention the reputational damage a business could incur. Simple steps can be taken to protect information from a wide range of threats in order to ensure business continuity, minimise business risk, and maximise return on investments and business opportunities.

    This presentation will hear from Michelle Hoskin as she shares the 14 point check plan on how you can meet your information security obligations whilst keeping a tighter ship for the benefit of the business and the clients.
