Governance and Risk Management Forum 2019

Now in its fifth year, Governance Institute of Australia's Governance and Risk Management Forum 2019 is the key event for professionals looking to tackle the risk and governance challenges of an increasingly uncertain business environment.

You will hear thought-provoking keynotes from industry leaders and challenging debates in our panel sessions that help you develop the skills needed to tackle the challenges facing all Australian organisations.

Why do I need to attend?

2019 was a year that saw governance in the news more than ever before: the Banking Royal Commission, the IPCC's report on climate change, ASX Corporate Governance Principles' diversity reporting requirements, industry disruption caused by new technologies. This is the time to upskill.

Each event, in each state, is tailored to focus on the unique governance and risk management issues faced in your region.

  • Interactivity: discuss the latest issues shaping the governance and risk management landscape in our interactive focus sessions and panel discussions
  • New skills and resources: upgrade your skills and create a framework that aligns your organisation's strategy, culture and resilience
  • Regional Insights: local experts sharing their insights on the challenges specific to your region
  • Networking: expand your professional network - connect with like-minded governance and risk professionals across different industries, and at every experience level

Integrity. Accountability. Resilience.
