Chief Risk Officer Summit 2019

CRO Summit 2019

We believe you have the power to drive innovation, create opportunities and prevent disaster.
You can only do this if your entire organisation, from boardroom down, has bought into a risk culture that you’ve created. You can achieve this with the skills to change organisational mindsets and implement practical frameworks that go beyond paperwork.
That’s why we’ve created the CRO Summit 2019. You will take away the skills and mentality to add value as a strategic leader, incorporating practical and innovative risk management approaches.

About CRO Summit 2019

Chief Risk Officer Summit 2019 will ensure you are equipped to handle the risk landscape your organisation faces.
In its fourth year, you will learn from leading CROs and thought leaders so you can embed an adaptable risk culture, navigate fast-paced disruption and construct the ideal risk appetite for your business.
Practical case studies and interactive sessions will focus on how you can deliver tangible benefits and deliver value so risk is integrated at every organisational level.
