Course Description:

Since the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) the topic of risk management has never had a higher profile. While initially seen to be the focus of the financial industry, the advent of the ASX Corporate Governance Principle 7 and ASIC Regulatory Guide 247 has required all listed entities to address their management and reporting on risk. And the stream of events such as wealth management scandals across banking and life insurance, the collapsed dam in Brazil's Bento Rodrigues, the BP Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, and the Cootes petrol tanker crash and its impact on McAleese IPO have demonstrated the destructive impact failure in enterprise risk management has on reputation, economic value and the ability of organisations across all sectors to operate effectively. Risk is now the business of all management and directors.

This masterclass will provide attendees with advanced knowledge and the opportunity to share experiences to strengthen their ability to shoulder the ever increasing responsibilities imposed on them by a growing range of stakeholders.
