Why You Should Attend

Risk Leaders: A New Frontier

The cliché of “no risk no gain” or “turning risks into opportunities” can be the catalyst of your organisation’s success or failure. The future of your organisation is highly dependable on the kind of risk appetite taken upon and if approached correctly.

Hence, in today’s business landscape we find that most organisations are prioritising their risk function on an all-time high so much so that the C-Suite level is welcoming the Chief Risk Officer function. Aside from financial accords, the ongoing economic volatility, fraud, and cyber threats, the role of the risk function has evolved to become an even more challenging one. Who would be responsible to craft a more robust and systematic risk management process? Internal auditors, compliance and finance are all beefing up their portfolio as they may be the next calling for the CRO position. How do you commit your organisation to a risk framework with a well-defined risk appetite? Are you visionary enough and have what it takes to be a CRO while scaling your organisation to be risk-proof?

This MENA FUTURE CRO conference has been carefully designed to not only help existing CROs but senior decision makers as well to reposition their organisation’s strategic response to these fluctuating risks and its impact on your organisation’s bottom-line results. This conference aims to empower participants with the right defence mechanisms to combat geopolitical risk, shifts in government regulations, turbulent market forces and impact of the oil crash presented through case studies, roundtable discussions and expert panels. Do not risk missing out on our post-conference workshop focusing on business continuity plans, facilitated by an international renowned risk expert.

Missing out on this conference is a risk you cannot afford. Join us now to arm yourself with risk-proof strategies that spell profit in the near future!
