“Sue Turner presented to business leaders on the challenges and opportunities of AI in the financial services industry. She was without doubt the highlight of the day! This is a top priority for the financial services regulators and all boards need to understand and assess the challenge AI represents. Sue’s advice will be really helpful to boards as they consider this issue.”

Simon, Chair, LV

“AI has the potential to transform our business but it also presents risks around data security, accuracy and bias.  Sue Turner at AI Governance helped us to better understand the opportunities and threats and develop our plans to explore this exciting topic.”

James, CEO, NAHL Group plc

“Sue Turner’s ability to distil complex concepts into understandable and relatable terms was remarkable.  Her expertise and insights from real-world case studies left a lasting impact on all participants – she really hit the mark and got us thinking.”

David, CEO The Bristol Port Company

“It was a great presentation, thoughtful and thought-provoking in equal measure, which prompted lots of discussions on the tables, and subsequently over drinks. Sue left people with a clear sense of the opportunities offered by AI as well as realistic sense of some of the threats, cutting through the hyperbole which has been such a feature of recent media coverage.”
