Leveraging on Enterprise Risk Management as a driver of Commercial Sustainability, Organizational Resilience, and Strategic Agility
Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur | 17th & 18th August 2015 – Conference | 19th August 2015 – Post Conference Works
As organisations formulate their strategies to adapt to shortening economic cycles and attempt to insulate themselves from the potential shocks of potential localized or global recession, corporate boards and risk professionals have discovered the criticality of Enterprise Risk Management practices. The recent global financial meltdown revealed that risk management structures collapse just when they are needed because of siloed, fragmented processes and the lack of senior management and board support. To be fully prepared, organisations require risk mechanism that effectively identify different types of risk in relation to objectives (not based on taxonomy approaches) and achieve appropriate balance between risk and opportunities, and protect the enterprise from consequences of unexpected events. Such practices require maturity in Board Risk Management thinking and an understanding that practical and effective processes – not systems or colourful dashboards - drive effective Enterprise Risk Management
Through world class practical case studies, this 2 day comprehensive conference programme provides the tools and expertise needed to not just embed Enterprise Risk Management into strategy choices and execution, but to take ERM to the Next Generation. This event will examine cutting edge highlights of integrated risk management approach that drives change, agility, resilience and sustainability whilst enhancing business performance

Global Spotlight Discussion on Emerging Risk
“Change is the law of life, and those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.” - John F Kennedy
Plenary session 1: The Power of Disruption
The world economy’s operating system is being rewritten. Leaders must adjust to a new reality. In the Industrial Revolution of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, one new force changed everything. Today our world is undergoing an even more dramatic transition due to the confluence of four fundamental disruptive forces—any of which would rank among the greatest changes the global economy has ever seen. Compared with the Industrial Revolution, we estimate that this change is happening ten times faster and at 300 times the scale, or roughly 3,000 times the impact. Although we all know that these disruptions are happening, most of us fail to comprehend their full magnitude and the second- and third-order effects that will result. Much as waves can amplify one another, these trends are gaining strength, magnitude, and influence as they interact with, coincide with, and feed upon one another. Together, these four fundamental disruptive trends are producing monumental change.

Spotlight Panel Interaction:
Effective board risk oversight as a key Driver for Sustainability /ERM
Roundtable Discussion “Implementing ERM Holistically; an Internal Auditor’s Perspective vs Risk Manager’s Perspective”
To many uninformed observers, Risk Management (RM) and Internal Audit (IA) functions appear to have huge overlaps in their responsibilities – leading some to conclude that Internal Audit can do the Risk Management function effectively in an Organisation. This misunderstanding is further compounded by IIA’s Position Paper on the role of Internal Audit in ERM which, although clear, has been misinterpreted by some to mean that IA should/can run the ERM function effectively and unconditionally by RM. The vested interests of external parties such as IA consultants has further fanned the misunderstanding. This clear conflict of interest can also potentially cause conflict when IA attempts to force the RM function to observe a more theoretical and audit centric view and approach to risk as opposed to a commercial and practitioner centric approach. The panel discussion will center around the issues and constructive way forward out of this situation.
