Naomi is the current Managing Director of the GRC Institute. Based in Sydney Australia the GRCI seeks to be the preeminent association for compliance and risk management professionals in the Australasian region. GRCI was formed in 1996 by a group of professionals in roles undertaking compliance, a new role concept at the time. Over the following twenty years these dedicated individuals contributed to building a career pathway for themselves and their peers, which has evolved into an accreditation and education framework with options for those entering the profession and those desiring to increase their professional development.
Working with compliance and risk management professionals closely over the past fifteen years and participating in numerous industry discussion groups looking at issues and resources needing to be built, Naomi is passionate about the value of compliance and those undertaking the work to build and embed compliance frameworks in organisations. Part of her role with the GRC Institute is to advocate on behalf of members with their organisations, regulators and government to help them understand this inherent value and how to better achieve their desired strategic and operational outcomes by harnessing the talents, skills and knowledge of our GRCI members.
Passionate about the potential contribution of not for profits in the broader setting of society and commercial markets, Naomi has completed a Masters in Community Management and this, combined with her business operations background, means she aims to work toward building the GRC Institute for a financial stable future while consistently delivering member value, adopting agile and technological solutions to delivering services, tools, events and professional development options to GRCI members.
