Course Overview

We are now entering an era were black swans and grey rhinos are becoming much more common in the board room. We are no longer living in the world of least likely events not happening. On the contrary, we are in a post pandemic environment embroiled with major macroeconomic / geopolitical, technological changes that will impact many aspects of the way we live. The spill over social impact will also impact organizations operationally and culturally.
Hence, organizations are learning that Risk Management principles have not only been designed for the sake of establishing a risk management function within the organization.
Risk management principles have been created to embed the appropriate disciplines throughout the organization that can enable stakeholders (risk owners) to better foresee future events and be prepared to deal with their consequences.
This program has been designed for Board Directors & C-Suite to enable them to obtain a more detailed understanding of how essential risk management concepts can be utilized to enhance their decisionmaking capabilities.
The program will focus on making sure that participants understand their role as it relates to risk management and at the same time the roles of other stakeholders in the organization. These are key topics that will be addressed in this program.

Key Takeaways

Understanding Black Swans & Grey Rhinos

    We have been working with LEORON for the past two years and will be working with them again this upcoming year. The programs they delivered were fruitful and exciting and our organization has received positive feedback from the participants. What our organization aims to do is to provide at no cost training for all the private sector employees so that they may benefit from our offered programs in Innovation and Professional development. Leoron has helped us achieve this goal. We look forward to continuing this service and wish them the best of luck. Regards,
