Join us for this two-day interactive session where you can engage with your peers and colleagues in putting the theory of ERM into practice with instructors that designed and built their own successful and mature ERM Programs. This workshop is designed to help participants in building and practicing their skills in managing risk and running/contributing towards an integrated ERM program.

The key areas covered will include:

·         Practice Root Cause Analysis within your team, develop appropriate risk mitigation strategies (avoid, reduce, prevent, segregate, duplicate, diversify, transfer (contract and insurance) and newly developed - adapt) for your given scenario.

·         Learn through practice the following topics: inherent and residual risk identification and assessment, what is risk appetite and tolerance and how do you make decisions with these concepts, aggregation of risk and what do you do with when your risk register holds a 1000 risks.

Selecting Board of Directors: What best practices organizations should adopt when selecting and assessing board of directors!
The Board of Directors are vital for any organization’s good governance. Governance determines how an organization is centered and where it stands. “The Boards of Directors are a group of individuals within an organization that are either elected or appointed as representatives of Shareholders or Owners to establish Corporate Governance and enterprise risk management policies”. (Source: It is given that for an organization to be successful, it should have a Board of Directors (BOD) with a broad mix of skills to oversee the wide range of issues that may arise. The BOD are collectively or in rare cases even individually accountable for your company’s performance, compliance and risk mitigation strategies. Depending on the size of the company and needs, the Board could be limited to just advisory role or fully mandated having the ultimate power a…

Operational Risk Management and Compliance Management in Emergency Department

Client Question Hi,
We recently underwent an Accreditation Canada visit and were cited for not using 2 patient identifiers. The nurse picked up the patient in the ED and she was familiar with the patient and neglected to check her name and DOB. Patient identifiers is something that we have been struggling with for the past two accreditations. We thought we had it all well in hand but it only takes one incident to get cited on failing the ROP. Does anyone have a process or audit tools that are used routinely to audit staff using 2 patient identifiers? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Turning Reputation Risk into PR Opportunity: Story of AXA - helping world become better place, a world free from tobacco.

It all started with a letter sent by Dr. Bronwyn King to the AXA board of directors. Story of AXA's divestment in tobacco is one of the greatest in modern times highlighting good governance, corporate responsibility and effective reputation risk management. In a stunning financial decision that will make history, AXA decided to divest around 1.8 billion Euro worth of tobacco-industry stocks.

AXA with over 102 million customers in 56 countries and an employee base of 157,000, is one of the world's leading insurance groups. This decision to divest is not very popular among all of its stakeholders and yet AXA's management took this step as they can see the risks and total cost of tobacco industry as it relates to healthcare cost and loss of lives. Taking this decision will make AXA very popular and respectable company among anti-smoking groups. Overall its a huge win for the company and the society at large as we tackle the issue of tobacco addiction.  Kudos to AXA's man…
