Strategic Risk Management for ACE Providers

Strategic Risk Management for ACE Providers

An interactive online presentation and discussion.

About this Session

If risk is “the effect of uncertainty on objectives”, then the last 12 months has seen that uncertainty in overdrive. The response of the NFP sector to bushfires, COVID-19 and now floods has been truly remarkable, and yet many are feeling not just jaded, but are wondering if their risk frameworks are fit for purpose. Phil Butler, NFP Sector Leader at AICD, will lead a discussion on the broad topic of risk including risk appetite, management and the link between risk, strategy and purpose.

When: Via Zoom interactive on Thursday 29 April 2021 at 11.45am.
(Note: The commencement time of this event has changed.)
