Despite years of research and statistics extolling the benefits of ERM, far too many organizations in Canada have little to no ERM framework, leaving themselves vulnerable to competition, market factors, and other risks. So why are so many organizations seemingly reluctant to build this capacity? What will it take to tip the scales in Canada, from practitioners constantly selling ERM to having a sustainable and in demand ERM program that drives material incremental value to the business? And further: will we reach the tipping point where the majority of Canadian companies see ERM as essential to strategic success?

Join us for this special session as Richard Arthurs discusses the benefits of ERM, and the very real risks associated with having little to no framework at all. This webinar will focus on how to reach a high ERM maturity level in your organization, whether you are a large multinational company, Government, or small to medium enterprise.
