Risk Institute Morning Briefing
  • May 16, 7:45-845am, The Blackwell Inn and Conference Center
    Most risk management crises result from a combination of several factors. As such, risk management must embrace an integrated approach to solving complex problems.  Today's business leader “owns” the risk of the organization, wherever that risk might lie, and leaders need clear risk management constructs and policies in place to guide the organization through an increasingly volatile and uncertain landscape. Is your company prepared to manage an integrated approach to risk management? And are you prepared to lead that approach?

    Alumnus of The Ohio State University Fisher College of Business PhD Program and now Boston College Professor, Jérôme Taillard, will discuss how risk management affects company value from an integrated perspective.  Drawing on diverse business analogies and examples, Professor Taillard will share observations from his research in risk management in this thought-provoking and insightful session.

    Free breakfast and session are available for C-level executives, SVPs, VPs, and business unit leaders charged with driving growth and creating value while managing risk, but seating is limited.  Click here to register.
