04 - 05 June, 2014

Risk management has become an essential part of corporate management, strategy, and leadership over the past few years, and risk executives are increasingly required to work across a broad range of issues. Risk leaders also need to coach and train their staff in the detection and management of emerging risks. If properly structured and integrated with strategy, active risk management can provide a competitive advantage in all sectors, providing critical protection to corporate reputation and brand, as well as enabling strategic growth over time. This conference offers an up-to-date overview of the critical global and strategic risks confronting multinational organizations.

Fear of not knowing how to manage risk, understand risk, know what’s next, be at a disadvantage with competitors, fail to live up to legal and regulatory standards, understand complexity of issues, should drive folks to want to get the latest on the principal strategic, substantive and organizational risks.

Desire to learn more to make the organization more resilient and healthy and compete in the marketplace in an effective way
