Understand the study’s methodology and findings, while learning from the full details of a case study. Hear about UK organizations’ experience with ERM implementation and the hallmarks of their success, and leave with practical guidance on how to measure ERM benefits and demonstrate these to the board. This session is for experienced risk managers.
