This informative and interactive half-day workshop will delve into writing and presenting on risk to Risk Committees and the Board. What information do you need to deliver and present and what do you need to consider when reporting?

Co-presented by Mary Morel and Peter Whyntie, this workshop will combine Mary’s experience in business writing and Peter’s experience in risk. Together, Peter and Mary will cover:

  • What information does the Risk Committee and Board need: why, how and the importance of context
  • Keeping the Risk Charter up to date
  • Clarifying your key messages – getting to the nut of the problem
  • Explaining what your key messages mean for the organisation

  • Contributing to risk sections in board papers
