EastNets, (eastnets.com), a leading provider of innovative global compliance and payments solutions, successfully held its 14th Annual Conference 2017 from 7th-9th March at The Grand Millennium Hotel, Amman Jordan. The event was described as one of the company’s most inspiring annual conferences, which has been a company tradition that has been in effect for the last 14 years.
This year’s rallying call was ’Growth: It’s Our Choice,’ echoing EastNets plans to accelerate growth this year. The company expansion is already on track with a 25 per cent growth in workforce since last year.
The event witnessed quite an intense engagement level by key employees, partners, clients and experts. The robustness among attendees is fueled by the unusually high activity in the global financial regulatory environment, which continues to exert profound changes on financial institutions, the core client base of EastNets.
Hazem Mulhim, EastNets Founder & CEO, said, “We presented the EastNets 2020 Strategy at the conference. The strategy in general and our product strategy specifically have been meticulously designed to address the ever rising compliance challenges affecting financial institutions. The financial world today is facing unprecedented regulatory complexity that is further challenged by the rise of a resourceful digital organized crime.”
“Our roadmap for the next three years has already begun with aggressive hiring across four continents; as well as the introduction of new products targeting AML and fraud, which we plan to launch by May this year. Ultimately, our products and solutions will be deployed as an integrated compliance platform,” added Mulhim.
Keynote Speakers for the 14th Annual EastNets Conference 2017 were representatives of two main tracks within the financial industry, compliance and enforcement.
On the broader issue of compliance, MENA Economist & Advisor, H.E. Dr. Nasser Saidi, spoke in great clarity and breadth about the far-reaching impact of financial crime on the global economy. Saidi is Founder and President of Nasser Saidi & Associates and the former Chief Economist and Head of External Relations at the DIFC Authority and Executive Director of Hawkamah, The Institute for Corporate Governance and Mudara Institute of Directors.
Illuminating financial crime from the perspective of an investigator, Gregory Coleman, Founder and CEO of Coleman Worldwide Advisors, engaged the audience with his unique experience as a Special FBI Agent handling the case of Jordan Belfort and his associates, a case made infamous in the movie ‘The Wolf of Wall Street.’’
The first day of the conference was dedicated to sales presentations and workshop by sales guru Bob Apollo, with more focus given to consultative selling.
On the sidelines of the Conference, EastNets held brief negotiations with potential partners for new markets in the US, Caribbeans, Central and South America. Earlier this year, EastNets had concluded a partnership agreement for the state of Florida in the US.
