4 Most Overlooked Business Risks

Preparing for the Future

We have a tendency to focus on fighting today’s fires without spending adequate time on bigger, more important risks inherent in today’s inter-connected, competitive world. This seminar drills down into four commonly overlooked business risks, looking at how to anticipate, manage, mitigate or exploit them. We will discuss the professional obligations of the board and executive management to assess risks and the responsibility of internal and external auditors to evaluate the adequacy of these assessments.

A good course. I liked the fact that we could have a very open discussion.
