In the current commercial and economic climate of the world, it is crucial that boards elevate their focus on risk management. A recent survey conducted by EY revealed that risk management is not always aligned with business strategy and is overly focused on immediate concerns, highlighting the low value placed on risk management's role in establishing company strategy. So, how can risk professionals help the board understand the significance of risk management and it’s alignment to the broader organisational strategy?
Join our executive roundtable with David Turner, Chief Executive Officer at RiskNZ, Regan Smith, Risk Manager at Hastings District Council, Karen Camron, GM of Safety and Business Risk at Main Power NZ, and Dean Rogers, Regional Sales Manager at Camms, and explore a blueprint for risk managers to educate their boards on the importance of risk management.
This webinar also explores the benefits of an integrated risk management approach and provide insights on building a successful Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) function.Register Now
