RIMS has announced it will host a virtual ERM conference on 4 and 5 November 2020, to explore ERM as a catalyst for successfully navigating today’s volatile risk landscape.

RIMS ERM Conference 2020: Catalyzing (Y)our World has invited guest speakers to share their experience managing some of the greatest risks facing organisations and the power of ERM to emerge stronger.

“ERM continues to grow in importance and has enabled organizations to proactively develop and implement strategies that support a changing business and consumer landscape, innovation and critical decision-making,” said RIMS CEO Mary Roth. “The stage is set for a powerful and insightful virtual learning and sharing experience for the risk management community.”

Keynote speakers include thought leader and author, Dr Andrea Bonime-Blanc and early ERM advocate and the first-ever chief risk officer James Lam.

Bonime-Blanc will explore five key megatrends of our turbulent times as well as the environmental, social, governance, and technology (ESGT) journey we must travel to get from Gloom to Boom and risk to value. Her remarks will offer practical roles that risk professionals can play at every step of building strategic resilience.

Lam will share insight on why boards need risk experts to join their ranks and what skills risk professionals need to be a corporate director.
