Risk Leadership on the Boardroom Agenda – the Risk Manager’s Professional Contribution

October 04, 2016 14:00 to 14:45 Grand Master Suite

Risk managers driving value into the board’s risk conversation

Chairmen and their boards recognize the scale of their challenge and the requirement for support and expertise to help them understand their rapidly changing risk profiles.

There is an opportunity for risk managers to provide this support.

Research indicates that the boardroom door is open for risk managers – but do risk managers have the knowledge and expertise required to respond when they are invited to enter the boardroom and consulted for their advice and opinion?

This session will set out some of the issues involved for risk managers making this professional journey and offer practical ideas and suggestions on how risk managers can seize these professional opportunities.

Reinforcing FERMA’s vision of “a world where risk management is embedded in the business model and culture of organisations”, this session will focus on how risk management can be embedded in the business model of the organisation and the importance of risk culture and the profiling of risk culture as part of this process. The session will introduce models, tools and techniques designed for the risk manager developed in partnership with colleagues from other professions and in consultation with those who have a seat at the boardroom table.
