Applied Risk Governance explores how effective oversight of risk can be leveraged to improve governance, performance, resilience and competitive advantage within existing business frameworks and activities.

This half-day course provides a comprehensive overview of risk management at board level, as well as examining the relationship between risk and strategy. You will also focus on the issue of setting risk appetite and tolerance and its impact on culture, and review risk committees in action.
