FREEin45 // What should your IT solution look like?

One lightbulb among many

Apply now for a FREEin45 workshop.

You need IT capabilities and solutions that are secure and flexible.

You need to ensure these capabilities and solutions align to the expectations of a wide range of interested stakeholders – Risk / Compliance, CEO, Board, staff, clients, and regulators like the CBI and DPC.

You can continue to be hopeful that what you have is appropriate. Or you can take action to move to a comfortable and provable state.

FREEin45 is your first step.

This virtual workshop is free for regulated firms, requires the completion of an intake form at least 2 days before the session, and is tailored toward the CFO, COO or Executive who has ultimate accountability for IT but for whom IT is not their primary area of expertise.

(If you are not this person but you are interested in this workshop, contact me to see how I might help).

What to expect from your FREEin45 workshop:


  • Clarity about your current situation.
