We all live with risk every day, whether we realise it or not – so why should risk management be one of those subjects that can 'turn people off'? This webinar is intended to provide some food for thought by taking participants into the world of risk management in a way that will make it a practical governance tool rather than simply a compliance requirement.

Who should attend?

This webinar is designed to appeal to EVERYONE – as the skills of practical risk management have a value way beyond the Board or Audit and Risk Committee.  Whilst those with a specific responsibility for operating the risk management process as well as those who oversee and manage it will benefit, everyone else will benefit as a key message is:  “Risk management is everyone’s business”.

  • Overview of the risk management cycle and key observations on it
  • Address the core issues in making risk management practical
  • Risk in the board room – and beyond
