Keith Read 
Compliance Expert

Keith Read is an award-winning thought leader and expert in compliance, ethics and governance. He was formerly the Group Director of Compliance and Ethics for BT (British Telecom) in London and is a past winner of the Compliance Register’s Best Compliance Officer award, when he also won the Best Compliance Company award. He was subsequently the subject of a full-page Daily Telegraph national press article - 'Compliance and Science'.

He has an innovative and practical approach to compliance, using techniques such as 'Compliance not Complacence' - whilst recognising the 'Cost of Compliance'. His most recent Whitepaper - 'The Compliance Covenant' - was the featured article in Compliance and Ethics Professional, the US’s leading industry journal, and takes a new and highly original approach to the challenge facing all compliance officers; that of changing the significant ‘push’ needed to deliver and maintain an effective compliance programme into employee ‘pull’.

Keith is a frequently-requested international speaker, drawing on his wide-ranging practical experience of compliance, including the Bribery Act and Anti-Bribery and Corruption. His thought-provoking ideas and infectious enthusiasm appeal to diverse compliance, ethics and governance audiences, and readers, worldwide.
