Three sessions accountants can’t afford to miss at #GRMF2020

In the year following the revelations of the Royal Commissions, the focus on governance and the risk of poor governance has never been sharper. For accounting professionals, this is a time when your skills, insights and best practice are central to organisational success and value. 
We are delighted to bring you the Governance and Risk Management Forum 2020, a two-day program that offers deep and unique insights into how organisations are reframing their governance thinking to strengthen frameworks and practice. 

Here are three sessions you can’t afford to miss at #GRMF2020

  1. Panel session: ESG: Thought leadership — from ethical to social to ESG integration
    Australian ESG leaders including Måns Carlsson-Sweeney, Dr Darian McBain and others will join a panel to discuss the materiality of ESG to the short and long term value of the organisation and how the social and environmental factors influence investment decision making. The pressing ESG issues, we’ll look at include:
    • climate change risk
    • regulatory risk
    • supply chain and distribution disruption
    • modern slavery
    • transitional risk.

  2. Focus session: Centre stage — Transparency and accountability
    Strengthening of accountability frameworks is one of the key directions to come out of the Financial Services Royal Commission and from the CBA APRA Report. In this focus session, you will look at:
    • the complexities of accountability in modern organisations
    • the identification of those accountable
    • the mapping of accountability.

  3. Presentation: Business model risk: Where strategy and risk intersect

    Presentation: Business model risk: Where strategy and risk intersect
