Why You Should Attend

14th Annual Conference in Risk Series: Strategic Risk Management

Businesses today are exposed to more numerous and diverse risks than ever before. The financial crisis has resulted in more demand for risk management in general with the objectives of preventing risk management failures and reducing overall risk exposure. Risk managers are under more pressure to justify their presence and deliver value to their business. This in turn is driving a need for better risk communication, both with the executive board and with the rest of the organisation. As a further challenge, current world events have brought into focus the problem of low probability/high impact risks and the question of how businesses can shield themselves against catastrophic occurrences. Integrating the management of different risk types and risks from different divisions into an enterprise-wide framework can improve efficiency and help central oversight and decision-making.


This marcus evans conference will show you how to move away from traditional, silo-based approaches to risk management and implement an integrated Strategic Risk Management programme. Senior risk managers from leading European companies will share their ideas for getting business leaders to take an active role in SRM. They will show you how risk can be measured and communicated through common metrics and how business processes can be aligned to risk strategy. You will have the chance to discuss with your peers the business reasons for engaging in risk management and discover new ways for it to add value to your organisation. The high level of speakers and other participants will guarantee unrivalled opportunities to network, exchange ideas and experiences and learn how to take your SRM to the next level.
