A Risk Manager’s Approach to Changing the Perception and Value of Risk

What you’ll learn…

A recent survey of 500 global board members by EY revealed that risk management today is not always aligned with business strategy and is too entrenched in the here and now – revealing just how little value is placed on risk management’s role in setting of company strategy.

Today’s commercial and economic environment demands that boards step up their game with an intense focus on risk management. Boards have the capacity to reframe their organisation’s approach to risk management, yet all too often board members focus on setting the big picture strategy, with risk and compliance working at a purely operational level.

So how can a risk professional help the board see the value of risk management; from a department of “no” to a department of growth?

Watch our on-demand 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, as they discuss creating a blueprint for risk managers in New Zealand to educate their Boards on the value of risk. Learn why many organisations still don’t integrate risk & strategy, the benefits of adopting an integrated approach to risk management and gather insight on how to build a successful GRC function.

Providing Boards and Executives with “the perfect measurement” of information is key to bringing them on the risk journey.
