Kelly-Ann McHugh: The Challenges of Being a Compliance Entrepreneur
Show Notes Chapter Markers

Kelly Ann McHugh is the Singapore-based director for MyCompliance Office for the Asia-Pacific, a provider of solutions to manage conflicts of interest. Having grown up in New Zealand, she ventured beyond its tranquil confines to explore what the rest of the region had to offer. It took her to a career at Thomson Reuters as its APAC director for APAC regulatory intelligence and compliance training – and beyond!
 
As someone with a strong passion for continued education – especially in the corporate world – and for providing staff with tailored, relevant and practical training, she talks to Regulatory Ramblings host Ajay Shamdasani about the value of compliance, perceptions of the function, being a woman in a field that is still heavily male-dominated, the challenges of being an entrepreneur and what advances in technology mean for the compliance profession more generally.

This podcast is co-hosted by Reg/Tech Lab - HKU FinTech, HKU-SCF Fintech Academy, and the HKU-edX Professional Certificate in FinTech.
