Q. What is your role and what perspective do you bring to the conference?

A. “Warren Bayliss is the Global Head of Export Controls for Rolls-Royce’s Defence Business. He leads a global team of 17 professionals and is responsible for all Defence Exports to over 100 customers around the world. Warren also oversees the internal compliance program for the Defence Business and provides expert advice, guidance, and support to the business on a range of Defence Export and licencing matters”.
