Institute of Risk Management Senior Member Appointed to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report Advisory Board

LONDON: The Institute of Risk Management (IRM) is delighted to announce the appointment of Carol Ouko-Misiko, CMIRM to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report Advisory Board. The purpose of the Advisory Board is to provide advice and guidance on the process and the content for the Global Risks Report 2020.

 Carol is a senior member of the Institute and plays a key role in managing the IRM’s East Africa Regional Group; she is Group Chief Risk Officer for Britam Holdings Plc where she oversees risk management across seven countries (Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda, South Sudan, Malawi and Mozambique).


Carol Ouko-Misiko, CMIRM said:

 "It is a great honour and privilege to be appointed to the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report Advisory Board and to represent the IRM providing my professional input from an African perspective.


Today's world is increasingly defined by unpredictable events with severe and lasting consequences that impact on an organisation's ability to survive and thrive.  Effective business risk managers must develop greater global situational awareness to understand and stay ahead of these direct and indirect risks. 

 I look forward to playing an active part in raising the profile of risk management globally and influencing how risk managers respond to aspects of everyday life from climate change to business resilience in the face of economic volatility through the Global Risks Report 2020." 


Emilio Granados Franco, Head of Global Risks and Geopolitical Agenda at the World Economic Forum said:

 “Carol Ouko-Misiko joins our Advisory Board at a time when Africa’s role in shaping the future of the world is becoming more important. Her experience managing risk in East Africa will play a key role in expanding the scope of the Global Risks Report.”
