Governance involves all of us, and is supported by a risk function that provides insight and foresight to match increasing volumes and magnitudes of volatilities across our organisations. This means complexity in: disseminating information; setting and following delegations; and managing relationships, including management, the board, shareholders and all staff.
In recent times, there have been a number of challenges in getting governance right. While there is no silver bullet that addresses all of these challenges in our organisations, we believe it is important to talk about how they manifest themselves and to share observations of better practice.
We invite you to join us and Stephen Allen - the previous CEO of Macquarie Infrastructure Group and CRO of Macquarie Group, in having a discussion on how the risk function can be the backbone of good governance…
