Directors Dinner on Managing Risk


The Great Unknown: A Directors’ Dinner on Managing Risk

Managing risk is the great unknown in modern boardrooms. Whether it stems from ESG demands, geopolitical upheaval, cyber security threats, AI disruption or the vagaries of the supply chain, directors need to assure themselves they have scoped out what could go wrong before it does – and how they propose to deal with it.
