This newly revised workshop is designed for the risk executive who wants to understand the value a successful enterprise risk management (ERM) program can bring to an organization. Case studies, hands on exercises and an ERM Action Planner are used throughout the workshop bridge the gap between ERM theory and practice. This workshop is based on the Enterprise Risk Management textbook published by the Institutes.  The textbook is required reading for the workshop and must be purchased separately.
Instructor: Edward Robertson is the former Senior Manager of Enterprise Risk Management for the British Columbia Provincial Government (2002 to 2008) and author of BC Government’s Enterprise Risk Management Guidelines.
