Governance and Risk Management Forum 2019

Governance Institute of Australia

Event outline

Integrity. Accountability. Resilience.

Strengthen your foundations to reinforce good governance and build resilient frameworks with insights from Australia’s business leaders.

Day one focuses on governance. After a year of interrogating failures in governance, business leaders, governance professionals and risk managers are looking to reconnect with the foundations for good governance. This ‘back to basics’ moment offers a unique opportunity to build better governance systems for the future. We will look at:

  • the role of boards in strategy — examining the opportunities and boundaries
  • interrogating integrity — culture, ethics, values and independence
  • frameworks for accountability — roles, responsibilities, transparency, scrutiny and disclosure.

Day two focuses on risk management and resilience. At a time of rapid and continuing change, the centrality of an effective risk resilience framework has never been clearer. Led by a panel of CROs and risk management leaders the day considers the circle of resilience — personal, organisational and societal resilience — and the mechanisms to curate and understand internal and external uncertainties to reinforce adept, agile and adaptable resilience frameworks.
