Applied Risk Governance

A comprehensive look at risk management at the board level and the relationship between risk and strategy



Leverage risk to improve governance and performance.

This half-day workshop explores how effective risk oversight at board level can be leveraged to improve governance, performance, resilience and competitive advantage.

It examines risk strategy, risk culture and their effects on organisational performance. You will consider the interconnected nature of risk, including how one risk event can have a domino-like impact on other areas of governance. You will review risk management at board level, with a focus on setting risk appetite and the role of risk committees.


This short course is suitable for experienced directors and executives involved in managing and overseeing risk.

We recommend that participants complete the Company Directors Course, the International Company Directors Course, or have at least five years’ boardroom experience before undertaking this course.

This short course covers key aspects of governing organisational risk and the critical relationship between risk, strategy and operations.

After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Consider processes for setting and reviewing risk appetite and the relationship between organisational culture and risk appetite.
  • Analyse the impact of organisational culture on risk.
  • Examine the interrelationship between risk, strategy and organisational performance.
