‘Risk as a Facet of Strategy and Control?’ – Risk Training Seminar
Availability for the Welsh Sports Association’s (WSA) risk training seminar ‘Risk as a Facet of Strategy and Control?’ is quickly decreasing, with the event set to take place at the end of this month.
Are you prepared for any eventuality?
Do you know how to properly mitigate against, survive through, and thrive from a crisis?
The last two years of pandemic have highlighted many uncertainties for all of us, as individuals, and as organisations. As we re-engineer and re-generate the momentum required for continuity and viability, this is an optimal time to reassess our understanding of the difference between ‘risk’ and ‘uncertainty’. In this workshop we will consider practical dimensions to help in our strategic planning, risk mitigation, and control of irrationality and failure.
This is a fantastic opportunity to listen to and engage with a renowned speaker discussing an indiscriminate and crucial issue – at a reduced rate! Courtesy of subsidisation through the Governance and Leadership Framework for Wales, tickets will cost just £50. Who doesn’t love a bargain?
The speaker is Mark Wearden, who delivers consultancy projects through MBS Governance – a private strategy consultancy which he has run for the past 27 years, following 12 years in International Banking as an analyst and 8 years in Industry as a finance director.
During the past ten years, alongside his consultancy work, Mark has been a part-time Senior Lecturer in Corporate Finance and Corporate Governance at the University of Lincoln, chaired the ACCA Global Forum for Governance Risk and Performance, and is currently the examiner in Boardroom Dynamics for The Chartered Governance Institute – all alongside delivering lectures for professional bodies, in-house programmes for boards and directors, director and board mentoring, and public workshops and seminars (as he will be doing on May 24th!).
You can find links to Mark’s published work here.
There will also be free copies of Mark’s strategy book and directors’ handbook available at the event!
The seminar will be held in person at the Cardiff City Stadium with doors opening at 9am ahead of a 10am start on May 24th.
