““If you take risks, you may still fail.  If you do not take risk, you will surely fail.  The greatest risk of all is to do nothing.”

                                                                                                                            - Roberto Goizueta, former CEO of Coca-Cola

We have many on-going examples of companies that don’t manage risk well and don’t understand the risks they are taking.  Examples include car recalls, bank failures, oil spills, mining disasters and other crises which could have been anticipated and avoided.  A McKinsey survey of Boards of Directors reported “36% of Directors did not fully understand the major risks facing their business; an additional 24% said their board processes for overseeing risk management were ineffective, and 19 % said their boards had no processes.”  Increasingly, risk management responsibility falls squarely on the shoulders of financial managers.  This seminar provides insights about Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) and what our professional standards say every company must do to appropriately anticipate, manage and mitigate major risk.
