Strategic Leadership: The Implementation Deception, 10/08/15

Connecting the Dots from Risk Through to Strategic Plan, 17/06/15
Strategic planning should not exclusively be about great vision and big, hairy audacious goals. You need to think clearly about what it will take to achieve them. This webinar will explain why so many strategies underperform and what you can do about it.
What Does Risk Based Decision Making Really Mean, 16/02/15 Risk based decision making is fundamentally important to good decision making because with every choice there is uncertainty. In essence, decisions are about eliminating choices to the point that you have your preferred choice.
Decision Making - It's an Uncertain World, 10/11/14 A range of research indicates that managers get around half of their VIP decisions wrong. Think of the impact on productivity and ultimately on the bottom line if we can improve our success rate on decisions. The perfect decision is one that takes into account all future possibilities and identifies the pathway to success. The problem is, no one can predict the future, and so we have to manage the uncertainty.
Risk Appetite - Demystifying it for Boards and Executives, 22/09/14 Risk Appetite is risk speak. However, it is one risk term that boards and executives need to get their heads around, given the ASX governance guidelines recommends the board set the Risk Appetite for the organisation. If you get this right, it adds value to the organisation through improved decision making at all levels.
Becoming a Trusted Advisor: Gaining a Seat at the Table, 11/08/14 You and your team of risk advisors know the value of effective risk management for an organisation. However, so many in the business still don’t see the value. Risk management is seen as a handbrake on a progressive business rather than the performance enabler it actually is.
How to Build Lead Performance Indicators, 30/06/14 Boards and senior management are demanding more predictive indicators of future performance. They want both internal and external indicators of business risk and they wish they could access anyone in the organisation to really monitor and oversee performance. This webinar will establish the links between your existing performance reporting and the very early indicators available from other areas of the organisation such as HR, risk and compliance. Much of this challenge is turning soft data, the information in people’s heads, loosely held in databases and other knowledge repositories into hard data.
Creating Risk Champions - The Risk Department's Outsourced Model, 13/05/14 Some key influencers in your organisation see Risk Management as just a compliance activity and a handbrake on business, but you know the value of Risk Management when it’s done well – you know it can help your organisation achieve and surpass its objectives. This webinar will explore the concept of Risk Champions and how they can help deliver a strong Risk Management culture for an adaptive and resilient organisation.
Integrating Risk and Performance for Value Creation, 01/04/14 Way too often, I find organisations have a business planning framework, a performance management framework and a risk management framework that are at best lacking integration and at worst operating independently in silos. This webinar will give you a clear understanding of why these frameworks need to be integrated and will provide you with a model describing how they can be. After the webinar you will be better able to explain the need for integration and you will be in a strong position to drive integration in your organisation.

Risk Leadership: Conducting Sound Risk Assessments, 28/10/13 You have probably heard the statement “A bad risk assessment is worse than no risk assessment at all”. Well it is true. With no risk assessment we live off intuition which for the most part gets us by. With a bad risk assessment we wander off in the belief we have everything under control where we may be gravely mistaken. In this short 30-minute webinar, Bryan covers the dos and donts of risk assessment.
Risk Leadership: How to be Heard, 16/09/13 In this 30-minute Webinar, Bryan Whitefield describes how to communicate the message that risk is a valuable tool to drive business performance and not just a compliance function.
