Course Overview 

This program will provide participants the opportunity to understand how risk management and oversight is achieved through intentional and methodical planning and preparation, underpinned by an enabling risk culture exemplified by the Board of Directors and Senior Management.

With reference to law, regulations, guidelines and best practice, participants will gain theoretical and practical insight into this critical component of an organisations activity that can make the difference between success and failure.

When implementing risk management and oversight, it is essential for organisations to meet legal and regulatory requirements in a practical way. By attending this course, participants will become familiar with an internationally recognised risk framework and discuss enablers and blockers to its implementation, including an enabling risk culture.
