Professor Malcolm Sparrow will be in Sydney 17th & 18th September 2018 to lead his acclaimed and valuable executive education course The Professional Regulator – How to be a Risk Based Regulator.

The 2 day course is designed to induct all regulatory executives and managers who work within an agency to the teachings of Professor Sparrow. By educating your full senior management team and those involved in managing compliance programs, your agency can maximise the benefits of Sparrow’s teaching across all regulatory projects.

Designed as a short intensive course, you will gain from expert knowledge in a educational setting with fellow regulators facing similar challenges.

Don’t miss out on your chance to learn from the best. Check out the key takeaways and feedback from our previous attendees:

Kaia Hodge (Director Regulatory Innovation, Natural Resources Access Regulator)
“My key takeaways were, tools for and reassurance about the scope of potential interventions available and necessary for effective regulation (framed as addressing harms). Prof Malcolm Sparrow challenges traditional approaches to regulation, providing a valuable approach to complex issues and operating environments.  He is a great teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed the full two days.”

Namika Ranasinghe (Resource Access Planner, Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources VIC)
“Excellent content and delivery. Biggest takeaways for me – to be more strategic in thinking when problem solving. I valued the wealth of practical experiences together with the reflective methodical analysis of current practices and opportunities for improvement.”

Blair O’Connor (Director Therapeutic Policy, Department of Health)
“Professor Sparrow has an engaging presentation style which inspires passion for the subject matter. I took away an understanding of the value of regulatory craft and the opportunities that exist in establishing problem-centric capabilities. The Masterclass provides a unique opportunity to explore the field of regulatory craft and how novel actions in regulatory environments can achieve meaningful outcomes.  Through an engaging presentation style, participants are inspired to further their own regulatory activities and opportunities that may exists to further deliver the outcomes that society is seeking.”

Angelica Varhammar (Research Support Officer, Centre for Work Health and Safety) “My key takeaways were the distinction between problem-solving and trying to improve a program implementing a solution. That risks can be categorised and that there already are successful solutions to problems of the same category that you could try.”

Dwaine McMaugh (Director, Department of the Environment and Energy)
“Malcolm is the best educator I have ever met. He is an impressive expert and I learned a lot.
I took away the need to be flexible at an organisational level and to be effective in responding to regulatory non-compliance issues, and the discussion on professionalism.”

Jim Scott  (Acting Branch Head Regulatory Services, Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA)
“Very engaging speaker and extremely knowledgeable in his field. I learnt how to be a risk-informed regulator, and to differentiate between being a programme-centric and problem-centric regulator. One of the best conferences I have attended in a long time.
