This course explains practical risk appetite and how it plays a crucial role in effective risk management. You will learn how to define specific categories of risk and use case studies to determine the appropriate level of risk to take in-line with business objectives.


This one-day course will cover the concepts of risk culture and what it means for your organisation. You will also learn how to improve risk taking through the implementation of effective risk management techniques. Delivered through presentations, interactive workshops and group work, you will have plenty of opportunities to learn from the experiences of other delegates.


Many organisations already have risk reporting processes in place but these are not always reviewed as often as they should be. Timely, accurate and effective risk reporting is an integral part of a strong management framework, ensuring that the most up-to-date risk reporting techniques are being used to enhance decision making. This one-day course will explore the best and most up-to-date practices, providing a grounding in the design and implementation of effective risk reporting.
