Keynote presentation: Moving risk from operational to a strategic decision making tool
The risk landscape is changing.  The top risks facing firms are no longer operational but strategic  including reputation damage, increased competition, market disruption and uncertain economic conditions.  To manage these risks effectively  risk management must evolve into a strategic decision making tool.  StrategicRISK’s Asia-Pacific Lifetime Achiever and former chief risk officer at global shopping centre giant Westfield, Eamonn Cunningham will explore how risk professionals must adapt to meet these new challenges.
