Course overview

The board has overall responsibility and accountability for risk. For boards to discharge their role effectively members need to have a basic understanding of risk and risk management.

Used effectively, risk management is a useful management tool to help ensure that not only does the board and its committees focus on the right things, but it should also provide comprehensive assurance that risks are being managed to the best of the organisation’s ability.

This training provides a practical view of what board members and board stakeholders need to know about risk management to help demystify risk; ensure that risks are captured and articulated appropriately; and demonstrate that risk reporting should focus on the management of risk as opposed to the risk itself.

Who should attend?

This workshop is not a deeply theoretical workshop on the technical aspects of risk management.

Helped challenge any preconceived ideas and to clarify areas to focus on. It was helpful to provide 'head space' to evaluate the Trust’s position.
