Lifetime Achievement Interview: Birgitte Sand | VIXIO

Lifetime Achievement Interview: Birgitte Sand

As we approach the fifth annual VIXIO GamblingCompliance Global Regulator Awards (GRAs), on October 21, 2021, we sat down with Birgitte Sand the winner of this year’s Compliance Lifetime Special Achievement Award, and former head of the Danish regulator. In this role Birgitte famously took on the formidable task of overseeing the country’s transition from a monopoly gambling model to a system of licensing that is, these days, often cited as a gold-standard example of an open market.

In this very special episode, VIXIO GamblingCompliance podcast host and Editor Joe Ewens interviewed Birgitte ahead of the GRAs, to discuss the lessons learned from her years in regulation, her advice for the industry and much more besides.

Presentation of the 2021 Global Regulatory Award winners will take place at a black-tie ceremony, returning in person to the prestigious De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms, London, on October 21, 2021. Tickets can be booked here.
