11.45am Panel discussion: Risk management as a strategic decision making tool
Taking risks is fundamental to business growth. Those companies that don’t take risks will undoubtedly miss opportunities. Yet, it is surprising how many firms don’t embed the risk function into their decision making processes. Our panel of experts will explore the challenges and opportunities of moving risk from an operational to strategic tool. They will analyse how risk management can be used to deliver better decisions, save money, improve spending and drive innovation.
