Building resilience has become a hot boardroom topic, but its meaning seems to vary across sectors and organisations. Thus, we are developing a project to understand how companies are building resilience. We are planning to run a series of workshops, interviews and surveys to engage risk managers and know how they are dealing with uncertainties and disruptions while building resilient organisations. This data will be used to produce a best-practices guide for practitioners to help them to manage resilience, supporting their communication to Boards and other stakeholders.

 Managing Reputational Risk

An IRM North West England Regional Group Event

 Reputation is the general belief or opinion that other industries or people have about the company. It is how you are considered or labelled - good or bad. Protecting your company’s reputation and brand is a major challenge but I can be manageable through good risk management and business continuity. Reputational risk is not one single risk but the impact of a number of risks. 


 Wednesday 26 June 2019


 9:30 - 15:30 


Deloittes LLP - 2 Hardman Street, Manchester, M3 3HF

The event will focus on the need for the right Tone from the Top and how this drives risk culture in the organisation. With a variety of speakers from different perspectives, we aim to get a better understanding of what the organisation needs from the Board and senior leaders as well as what the Board expect and need from the risk teams. There will be short break-out sessions to discuss risk appetite and the use of risk information in strategic decision making. The intended audience are directors and senior leaders who are interested in risk and more senior risk professionals whose work involves engagement with the Board and leadership. Our speakers at present are the Director of Risk for the Ministry of Justice, the Chief Risk Officer for the MOD, a Non-Executive Director from Sellafield and the NDA Group Director for Risk. 

Benefits for our group:
• View of risk at the executive level straight from the source
• Gain perspective and insight from different sources including Government
• Key themes from the new Orange Book
• Networking opportunity for members
