60-second interview with Keith Moss

Keith Moss, 28/8/2018

Keith Moss TEP served on the Membership and Professional Standards Committees and was formerly Chair of the STEP Disciplinary Panel.

How and why did you get involved with STEP?

I was introduced to STEP in 1999 by the then Chief Executive and soon realised that this was an organisation that not only provided a training programme for all members of staff but was interested in promoting good practice on the international stage.

What benefits has it brought you personally, or in your business?

When Jersey introduced the requirement for all staff involved in the administration of trusts and companies to be qualified by examination, trust corporations, in particular, had to raise their game. STEP quickly introduced the international diploma.

You were recently given a Founder’s Award. What does this mean to you?

It is of course very flattering to receive such an award, and I am joining a very special band of STEP volunteers. It recognises that we all do what we can to ensure that STEP flourishes.

What is the most important thing STEP does, in your opinion?

STEP has many attributes, but if I had to pick one I think it has to be the tremendous advances that have been made in the qualifications arena. STEP has adopted a high-profile and very professional approach, and continues to offer considerable benefits to members of the profession.

What would you say to other members who are thinking of getting more involved with STEP?

STEP has so much to offer the professional and student alike.
