September 09, 2014 | London, UK: Lord Blair, formerly known as Sir Ian Blair once the highest-ranking officer in the British police, will deliver a keynote address at the MetricStream GRC Summit Europe 2014. The Summit will be held from October 20-21, 2014 at the May Fair Hotel in London, U.K. It will bring together leading GRC thought leaders, analysts, board directors, CEOs, executives, partners, and customers from across Europe. Based on the theme “Navigating Your GRC Journey”, the summit will feature several inspiring keynote presentations, GRC analyst workshops, panel discussions, and product innovation showcases - all of which are aimed at helping participants build stronger, more risk-intelligent businesses.

Lord Blair will draw from his extensive experiences as the Metropolitan Police Commissioner to share how organizations can effectively manage risk in today’s uncertain business environment. He will also share his insights on the importance of transformational leadership, and ways to build a robust governance structure that drives performance and credibility with key stakeholders.

With over 35 years of experience, Lord Blair is one of the UK’s most informed experts on strategic policing, leadership, and change management. During his tenure in the British police force, he held several key positions, including Chief Constable of the Surrey Police (1998-2000), Deputy Commissioner (2000-2005), and 24th Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police at Scotland Yard (2005-2008). In 2010, Sir Ian Blair became the Lord Blair of Boughton.

“We are very pleased that Lord Blair will be delivering a keynote at the upcoming MetricStream GRC Summit Europe 2014,” said Piyush Pant, Vice President of Strategic Markets at MetricStream. “Throughout his illustrious career in the Metropolitan Police, Lord Blair was highly regarded for his leadership skills and several transformative initiatives, as well as his ability to lead, inspire, and rise above challenges and crises. His insights on risk management and governance will be invaluable to participants at the summit.”
