The IPA Governance Forum is pleased to advise details of the next briefing: Risk Management – Embedding, Opportunity and Appetite, which will take place on Thursday, 8 November 2018.
Effective risk management is an integral feature of the good governance of any organisation, be it public, private or not-for-profit. But risk management can sometimes be focused solely on the processes surrounding risk registers, mitigations/controls and viewing risk as protection against negative events. Sometimes risk can be a ‘rushed’ late item on busy Board agendas. Done well, risk management can be a tool to prompt discussion and consideration of risk throughout an organisation, from the top down and bottom up; it can form the basis for a discussion on, and understanding of, the organisation’s risk appetite, and it can allow for consideration of risk in a more positive sense, in terms of opportunities and enablers.
This Governance Forum session seeks to explore key current issues, challenges and opportunities in respect of risk management, from the perspective of Board and Audit & Risk Committee members, those championing risk within an organisation and those supporting good practice.
