In today’s dynamic and complex operating environment, risk executives must cultivate an understanding of all the risks which can impact their business. Business activities are increasingly global, multifaceted and interdependent. Business leaders need to have the right skills and tools to identify and address a broad range of risks through an integrated approach and an enterprise-wide perspective. The unique Risk Management Association and Cass Business School partnership ensures unparalleled access to risk management experts from global institutions in the City of London as well as to subject matter experts, senior-level business practitioners, guest faculty, world-class research and thought leaders.
Who is the programme for?
This programme is designed for business leaders, functional heads and senior risk managers from all sectors who have a responsibility for overseeing the stability and performance of the business, while ensuring that their organisation’s culture is conducive to better risk management. Although most individuals will come from teams and organisations working in the UK and the EMEA region, business professionals from around the world are welcomed and encouraged to attend.
Focus and structure
Delivered over four days, the programme exposes business leaders and risk managers to a rigorous, yet practical blend of theory, practice and cutting-edge research, designed to build your global risk management knowledge and skills. In addition to its focus on known and quantifiable risks, the programme also concentrates on those risks which are unknown and difficult to measure.
Key areas of focus in the programme include: risk management as a strategic competitive strength; an integrated approach to risk management; fostering a culture and climate that openly communicates risk; a framework for rapidly responding to known risks and unravelling the complexities of the unknown; a focus on risk informed by global perspectives; and gaining a perspective on risk management and its implications for corporate governance.
