Enterprise risk management - Workshop 2018

My Offerings


A good risk management plan is critical to minimising unexpected risks that can damage performance and threaten business stability. A sound risk management plan has been suggested to decrease problems by as much as 80-90%.

Research has shown that well-designed risk management plans can decrease challenges encountered most effectively when combined with a world-class management methodology. Risk management planning should be completed early during the strategic planning phase since it is crucial to successfully achieving strategic objectives. The risk management plan identifies and establishes the activities of risk management for the organization across the various functions.

This workshop will examine risk management from the two perspectives of damage or adverse impact upon the enterprise and the need to avoid missing key targets or opportunities.

Participants will also gain a comprehensive understanding of how risk management is an integrated part of performance achievement.

*A questionnaire will be required to be completed prior to the day of the workshop to facilitate maximum satisfaction with the learning process.

Key topics covered:

  • Uncertainty in financial markets – global or local;
  • Corporate product failures and recalls;
  • Extensive R&D projects;
  • Significant corporate or multi-sector consumer credit risk;
  • Targeted and random external attacks (physical or technology based)
