Risk Leaders 2019

A Decade of Discovery & Disruption

10th annual conference | 14 November 2019 | Inmarsat, London

What are the real risk issues for boards today? Are they pre-occupied with fighting short term tactical battles while missing some big picture changes like digital disruption and climate change? Or are these sorts of risks just too big and impossible to handle, leaving resilience as the best defence. Given the increased volatility of the external environment, how should boards approach their governance and risk management responsibilities? What can be done to help organisations instil the behaviours at all levels that will meet the needs of stakeholders and enhance reputation? 

This year’s Risk Leaders conference will focus on some of the cutting edge thinking that is emerging across the world to address these big issues.

Keynote speakers include: 

  • Jim Winters, Managing Director, Global Fraud Management, Barclays
  • John Scott, Head of Security Education, Bank of England
  • Robert J Trent PhD, Professor of Supply Chain Management, Lehigh University
  • Lakshmi Shyam-Sunder, Chief Risk Officer, World Bank

If you are interested in managing regulatory risk, please hold this date and time as our next seminar event will introduce our guides on regulatory risk management and assurance. As usual, the event will include an interactive session to gain your insights and to demonstrate how the guides can help on a practical level. We should also expect to hear from a regulator (or two) about their thoughts on the topic and a peer about how they have tackled this subject.
