Risk Management – A Practical Guide for Your Organisation

Social enterprises, charities and community organisations face a myriad of risks. Although these risks cannot be avoided, their potential impact can be minimised through effective risk management.

Join us over 2 days (12 & 13 May) for a hands-on training on managing risk in your organisation.

These practical workshops will provide participants the tools to design an actionable framework to assess and manage risk within their organisations.

Participants will be creating their own Risk Register using this framework, while also learning from the shared experience of their peers across the sector.

How to register

This event will be held on Zoom. Please register below.

Meeting details will be sent to you after registration. Please note that this online event will not be recorded.
