Supervisory English Coaching 

Supervisory English Coaching


Supervisory English Coaching focuses on offering both individual clients and small groups of senior managers and C-level managers the chance to discuss and ask questions about the everyday themes and topics that are important to those who deal with the regulators at this level and need support for both meetings and presentations. I have been offering supervisory English coaching since the introduction of the SREP process in 2015 and continue to support a number of professional organisations in offering support to those who have contact to regulatory English. In particular at the moment I offer supervisory English support through the German Savings Bank training organisation NOSA. Click here to see an example of the latest seminars.

What is the focus?

In Supervisory English Coaching the focus is on discussing the guidelines and texts most relevant to the participants.

In the past this has included 

  • SREP guidelines from 2014-2018,
  • MaRisk BaFin
  • Internal Risk guidelines from Bank of International Settlements.
  • Climate Stress Tests ECB 2020

Individual clients as well as groups have found it very helpful to analyse these texts in relation to their own organisations situation. This involved looking at the texts in detail and then going on to discuss them and answer relevant questions that the regulators will ask in meetings.

Joint Supervisory Teams

For some clients it is also important to be able to take part in and often lead the JST meetings. These can be challenging meetings as English is often used by many non-native English speakers with a range of abilities and accents.

Who is this coaching for?

This supervisory English coaching is for managers and senior managers who have to read and understand the texts and guidelines from EBA, ECB, BIS and then work with them as part of the implementation process for their institution. Senior managers who are required to attend and take part in the JST meetings will also benefit hugely from taking part in one to one coaching or as part of a small group from their institution.

Recent clients have included senior managers from a number of institutions in the German Financial community that are currently supervised by the ECB .
