Risk is inherent in everything we do and uncertainties need to be managed. As Organisations are becoming increasingly aware of the fundamental need to manage risk as a major part of their management and future business strategies. An enterprise-wide approach to risk management allows organisations to consider the potential impact of all types of risks upon processes, activities, stakeholders, products, services, to realise business objectives and seize new opportunities.

Our two-day course aims to provide you with the fundamental principles of risk management using an integrated approach. It will provide the relevant knowledge and skills required for you and your business to manage risk systematically to improve performance within all areas of your organisation to maximise all opportunities and minimise all threats.
