Industry Events Online welcomes Martyn Oughton

LONDON/UK – 20 August 2014 – Industry Events Limited is delighted to announce that Martyn Oughton has agreed to join our advisory panel and write a weekly blog on the importance of training and events when ensuring compliance with financial services regulation.

Martyn is a financial services professional with over 20 years’ experience in the industry. He has worked in administrative, technical, management and compliance roles for a number of well-known life offices and consultancy firms. In the earlier part of his career, he was primarily a technical expert in the pensions field, leading many pieces of technical change and speaking at industry events and in-house training programmes.

Since 2007, Martyn has been a compliance professional, specialising mainly in the field of insurance. In 2009, he obtained the International Compliance Association’s (ICA) Diploma in Compliance and is now a Professional Member of the ICA.

Martyn has recently been an examiner for the ICA, marking exam papers and assignments for their UK and International Compliance, AML and Financial Crime Diplomas. He is also now a published writer in the field of compliance, having become a regular contributor to the ICA’s members’ journal “inCompliance”, and as well as joining the IEO panel, is also a contributor to the Industry Events Online blog.

Gareth Rowlands, founding director of Industry Events Limited, welcomed Martyn by saying:

"Having an individual such as Martyn on board in a real asset.  Not only is he a current practitioner who is well aware of the challenges facing the financial services industry but he also recognises the importance of good events and training to raise the standard of the industry.  He will be a valuable ambassador for Industry Events Online."

In response Martyn is quoted as saying: 

"I’m very excited to be invited to join IEO’s advisory panel and write for their blog. This is a business that has identified a clear gap in the market and is filling it extremely well. Even though it’s a relatively new business, it’s growing rapidly, and I feel privileged to be asked to help shape its development in future. The industry will soon wonder how it got by without this facility before!"

Event providers and professional bodies from around the globe can reach a wider audience of delegates by advertising their events and training sessions on a single tailored financial services website which will be frequented from delegates specifically from the Financial Services and closely related industries.
