9:00am Thursday, 6 August 2020
5:00pm Monday, 10 August 2020
Professional Development Course

This workshop is for risk professionals tasked with developing or influencing risk culture across the business.

Your facilitator is Bryan Whitefield, CCRO®

Course Overview

The key principle of risk management is that it creates and protects value. It does so by helping the business to take the right risks for the right reasons. And it is sustained through a strong culture of risk-based decision making. An embedded risk culture.

The challenge for risk professionals is that legacy cultures undervalue risk management. They see risk more as a compliance activity than something aligned to purpose, values and designed to help drive a successful strategy.

As strategy specialist Peter Drucker said, “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”. And so, risk culture, as a subset of culture, eats risk management for lunch. The best designed risk framework in the world will not deliver for an organisation if senior leaders and staff do not see it as part of their cultural fit. Aligned to the organisation’s values.

This course will provide you with a multi-faceted approach to assessing and improving risk culture.  It will also give you the ability to develop forward-looking metrics to enable you to tangibly measure and evidence positive culture change.
