Speaker one: Robin Tidd, Robin Tidd Management Ltd

During this presentation, Robin will discuss the following; 

  • How Football America UK created a greatly enhanced reporting system in response to the (as yet unknown) impact of Brexit.
  • Daily KPIs, thousands of pieces of critical data, frequent action reviews.
  • A transformation created out of the fear of what Brexit could do to them. 

Speaker two: Richard Hoult, Head of Risk, Audit and Assurance at Thames Water 

Have you heard the term “Enterprise Risk Management”? Do you know what it is and why it’s becoming more and more important to the running of a successful business?

This session will cover Richard's personal view of how Enterprise Risk Management can be used to improve how a business can operate, from the basics set out in corporate governance requirements to how the principles can be used day-by-day.

The session will cover:

  • The perception vs reality of Enterprise Risk Management     
  • How the Three Lines of Defence should work as part of the risk framework
  • Examples of ways to think about risk, mitigation of risk & controls
  • How good internal controls can help underpin Enterprise Risk Management

Richard will use the session to talk through his experience of moving Enterprise Risk Management from a tick-box risk reporting process to something which can add value to a business and something that senior leaders want to engage with!
