GRC Tuesdays: With the Return of Fall, It’s also the Return of Governance, Risk, and Compliance Live Conferences

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness”, this is how John Keats describes the season in his poem To Autumn. But the season of golden and red leaves and early evenings in front of the fire pit also brings another treat with 2 virtual Governance, Risk, and Compliance conferences:

Since there are still restrictions on travel and events in many regions, we decided to continue hosting these events virtually in 2021 again. Hopefully, we can go back to an in-person or a hybrid model next year!

For now, these are real-life and business-centric content that you can access from the comfort of your (home) office, with your favourite beverage and view live but also access the recordings for 3 months after the event. What’s not to like?

Whether your organization is building the business case for GRC, or you are looking for tips and tricks to make the most out of your current infrastructure or finally, if you would like to hear from others who have implemented SAP innovation and have business benefits to share, then these events are designed for you.

Over two days each, you will hear best practice and learning from an array of global SAP users.
