Businesses today face challenges attributed to the dynamic economic, volatile market, and pressing regulatory environment they operate in with margins squeezing and competition on the rise. Their strategic objective to enhance revenues in such trying times calls for a continual assessment of the adequacy and effectiveness of the Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) mechanisms. This not only implies that an integrated, organizational approach to risk, compliance and assurance activities be undertaken for business sustainability; but that appropriate accountability frameworks be built into and across the institutional heirarchy. In light of the above, this programme has been developed to provide strategic insights to enable participants in addressing complex external and internal influences whilst ensuring a balance between governance, risk management and compliance, since a strategically driven; common approach will facilitate an effective GRC that is well-aligned to organizational ambitions.
Expert knowledge disseminated and facilitation provided during the training will practically benefit the participants in the following:
Board members, CEOs, Chief Internal Auditors, Senior Internal Auditors, Chief Risk Officers/ Risk Management Heads, Risk Managers, Chief Compliance Officers/ Compliance Heads, Senior Compliance Officers, Chief Financial Officer/ Finance Heads, Company Secretaries, Senior Finance Managers, Internal Control Unit Heads, Internal Control Managers, Human Resource Heads, Business Strategy Heads, legal professionals.
