What does mature governance mean for your organisation? Livestream webinar

Online - Livestream, New South Wales, Australia

In light of recent cyber and culture governance issues it is time to ask – what does mature governance mean to your organisation?
This will look like different things in different organisations, but from GRCI’s perspective, many governance challenges arise due to the increasingly complex risk and threat environment. Boards have often been reminded in recent times, that it is their duty to not look after the financial performance of their entities but to have robust oversight of other risks to the organisational longer term health.
The threats to the well-being of their organisations are not only growing in number, but are growing in complexity and it is difficult for many people in governance roles, who have not been exposed or experienced in complex compliance and risk management, to have enough depth of understanding to ask probing questions and gain assurance about the activities being undertaken on their behalf to protect their organisation.
An esteemed panel will be discussing this topic and providing the insights from their experience in leading the efforts to support the governance activities of organisations.
GRCI and Diligent would like to invite you to Join Jamie Kelly, Caroline Marshall and Professor Elizabeth Sheedy on this webinar session to start 2023 with the big themes emerging from some hard lessons in 2022 – what does mature governance mean to your organisation?
