Past Event: Wednesday, March 30, 2022

Following our Irish Business Voice Survey and corresponding report, we hosted a series of 3 webinars (details below), supported by local Chambers of Commerce in Ireland.

At the three webinars, our team of experts addressed the insights, uncovered by the report, on the issues facing businesses today and equip your business with the right tools and advice to move to the next stage of your businesses success, whatever that may be.

This report delves into which sectors have been hardest hit, and which have fared best. The analysis of the findings has been summarised into six key areas of note, where we explore three areas of deep concern for businesses, and how they may take action to mitigate some of their worst effects.

Past events:

23 March – Business Risk Management

Risk management is firmly back on the agenda, senior leadership teams seek to re-evaluate their approach to risk management on a truly enterprise basis. Fundamentally many businesses of all shapes and sizes have realised that they need to revisit their approach to risk management if they are to improve their operational resilience and enable their strategic and commercial endeavours. Keeping risk management simple is best and taking a holistic view of the what? why? and how? gives a business the best chance to exploit opportunities. Businesses that adopt this approach have the confidence of knowing they have boxed clever in managing potential exposures and can focus on the potential upsides. In this webinar we will share the principles, critical success factors and benefits of ERM and how it can empower and enable a business in managing its day to day operations and in enabling its strategic ambitions.
