Integrity. Accountability. Resilience

Governance and Risk Management Forum 2019 is the key event for professionals looking to tackle the risk and governance challenges of an increasingly uncertain business environment. You will hear thought-provoking keynotes from industry leaders and challenging debates in our panel sessions that help you develop the skills needed to tackle the challenges facing all Australian organisations.

Governance and Risk Management Forum runs over two days — Day One focuses on governance and Day Two focuses on risk management. The event as a whole focuses on three key themes:

  • Integrity: creating a culture based around ethical conduct and independence
  • Accountability: scrutinising the roles and responsibilities of organisation leaders and boards, including strategy, transparency, and disclosure requirements.
  • Resilience: creating the frameworks to understand internal and external uncertainties, and reinforce effective, efficient and agile risk management frameworks.
