Blue Umbrella to Co-host Innovative Risk Management Program with Richard Ivey School of Business
One-day workshop to serve as a platform for senior leaders to share ideas and develop best practices for risk management compliance programs
By: Blue Umbrella
The one-day workshop is an exclusive opportunity for participants to share risk management experiences and best practices with fellow leading industry figures under the facilitation of Dr. Jeffrey Gandz - Ivey Professor of Strategic Leadership and Managing Director, Program Design for executive development programs. Structured as a dynamic combination of lectures, case studies and discussions, this format is formulated to induce high levels of delegate participation.
“This program design embodies more than just an educational opportunity for compliance professionals;
Following the global financial crisis in 2008, corporations have been facing a world of shifting political dynamics that have precipitated more stringent regulations as well as more rigorous enforcement. Authorities have penalized many organizations for corruption, bribery, money-laundering and other similar violations. “These disciplinary actions tend to result in massive fines and irreversible reputational damage for the companies involved,” warns Allan Matheson, Managing Director of Blue Umbrella. “There is no model guidebook out there that can guarantee compliance; that’s why it’s important for firms to share best practices and pitfalls and learn from one another. We hope that this workshop, with the expert facilitation from Dr. Gandz, can be the vehicle that brings key players together to communicate ideas on how to best protect companies from all types of risks.”
