Almost every industry is in the grips of a seismic shift driven by technology. A critical capability required in helping organisations deal with this fast changing and increasingly complex world, is effective risk management.

It is recognised that risk management capabilities need to evolve to stay in touch with the changing environment.

This is a huge challenge at a time when the headwinds around managing cost in most organisations are blowing their hardest.

This means improvements to frameworks, processes and methodologies, it means better tools being used more effectively, it means better trained people with deeper skills and expertise, it means better use of the data and information available inside and outside the business but, more than anything, it means smart, empathetic, consistent and effective leadership to make things happen.

In talking to risk executives, as well as those who have a vested interest in their success, it is clear that risk leaders face some very unique demands.

Getting a handle on how we prepare our future leaders in the risk arena warrants some focused attention.

A review of existing research in this area highlights a lack of data driven insights, as well as a lack of focus on the softer side of leading in a modern day organisation.

Rather than continuing to just talk about it, we teamed up with Adam Appointments (a leading Corporate Governance recruitment firm) and OR Talent (a consultancy specialising in leadership assessment) to carry out a programme of research activity.

Following the recent launch of the report developed, we will be hosting the following breakfast briefings to explore the research further – with a particular focus on the practical steps you should consider taking:

Glasgow Tuesday, 22 January 2019 8.30am Deloitte, 110 Queen St, G1 3BX
Edinburgh Wednesday, 23 January 2019 8.30am Deloitte, 20 Castle Terrace, EH1 2DB
