The annual Africa Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC) summit 2019 hosted by Strathmore University Business School (SBS) under the theme: “Data Management in Governance, Risk & Compliance for Industry Growth” is scheduled to take place from 15th – 16th October, 2019 at the SBS.
The GRC summit aims to bring together key stakeholders and synchronize information and activity across governance, risk and compliance to enable effective information sharing, effective reporting of activities and taking a proactive stance to address any gaps thereof by engaging the relevant stakeholders.
GRC typically encompasses activities such as corporate governance, enterprise risk management (ERM) and corporate compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

To help the financial services industry in Kenya and the region in pursuit and delivery of the GRC goal, SBS has a four (4) pronged approach:
The two-day conference is designed to generate key strategic objectives per theme to be implemented, tracked and evaluated in the next 3 years to propel industry growth in the region within a well governed, compliant and lower risk environment.
The summit theme has been broken into the following five (5) sub-themes:
Upon presentation of the main theme and the sub themes by the various facilitators, there shall be specialized break-away sessions with subtheme chairs or facilitators engaging delegates to collate sufficient views on the identified subthemes. Thereafter, the facilitators shall present their resolutions to the plenary for adoption.
The resolutions and deliverables emanating from the discussions will form foundation of strategy implementation workshops on specific sub-themes before the next summit in 2020 and the subsequent 4 years to be hosted in different countries, tracking and reporting progress on the growth and uptake of products and services in the financial services space.
All this will be achieved through a closely managed data collection, analysis and reporting process coordinated by SBS. The objective will be to inform policy and regulation from an informed and engaged perspective with industry participants.
This summit brings together thought leaders and domain experts in governance, risk, and compliance to debate and explore strategies and solutions that will meet the demands of a dynamic business environment.
We invite all our stakeholders: customers, partners, analysts, industry experts and the GRC community to join us at the GRC Summit in Nairobi which will be held at Strathmore University Business School to engage and explore best practices that support our vision of a “High Powered GRC Summit for Africa”.
The conference will focus on exposing the participants to a system of GRC controls, tests, procedures protocols and guidelines that are created to endorse, develop and promote compliance with international standards for governance, risk management, 3rd party compliance, human rights and corporate social responsibility. In addition, the Summit will expose you to current debates aligned with maximizing business value by improving operational decision making and strategic planning.
The industry growth journey through a close focus on governance, risk, compliance and risk requires an integrated approach on all facets of the economy and operating environment.
We therefore look forward to welcoming you at this year’s GRC Summit to learn and share your valued views on the role data management plays in governance, risk and compliance in pursuit of growth by financials services players and beyond.
