Effective Board Oversight of Risk

Effective Board oversight of risk

We all know that it is the role of the Board to ensure that there are effective arrangements for risk management.  However, what constitutes ‘effective’ and how Boards exercise their oversight role is often less clear.  While Board Members do not have to be experts in risk management, they do need to understand what ‘good’ looks like and, importantly, how to scrutinise and challenge to establish the necessary assurances about its effectiveness.

In this half day workshop, delegates will learn what ‘good’ risk management looks like and receive practical guidance on how to exercise their oversight role effectively.

Who is this course for?

Although primarily aimed at Non-Executive Board Members (including the Chair) and Committee Members, the course is also highly relevant to Chief Executives, senior managers and those who have responsibility for reporting on risk management to the Board and its Committees. 

How is this course delivered?

This course will have a practical focus and be highly interactive with a mix of presentation, case studies and group discussion. Some pre-course reading is required.
