Our masterclasses have been aligned to the Competency Framework for Governance Professionals to help governance professionals to develop confidence and practical skills to apply the fundamental principles of good governance.

This masterclass is designed to support Entry and Emerging level governance professionals to develop their critical thinking and analytical skills for identifying and managing risk. Through the use of practical case studies, this Masterclass will enable participants to practically develop and apply key skills and practices in undertaking the Risk Management process.
