In my blog last week I answered a question which came up during my masterclass on “How to run an impactful risk workshop”, about tackling Risk Management fatigue. Another question was asked during the workshop concerning that finite resource, time:

“Do you typically run multiple workshops for the one business unit?
E.g. A risk identification workshop first and then another to explore the

The method by which a firm manages the risk of conducting business with people outside the organization is known as third-party risk management. It is typically used to evaluate third parties in the sales force or distribution network, as third parties can be a significant source of risk.

An Effective Complaints Management

For years, a statistic has been widely circulated in the customer service profession. According to Lee Resources, for every client that files a complaint, 26 other consumers experienced the same experience but fled rather than complain.

The number of non-complaining customers may be more or fewer, but the point is that not all disgruntled consumers express their dissatisfaction. When people take the initiative to reach out and complain, it's because they desire you to understand that you messed

A couple of weeks ago I ran a masterclass on “How to run an impactful risk workshop”. One of the questions asked at the end of the session was:

5 Essential Qualities of a Successful CFO


 Historically, the post of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) has functioned as a steward of financial expertise, moral integrity, and shareholder value, selecting criteria to analyze organizational development and ensuring value.

Due to inflation, a greater number of rules, and more governance obligations, the CFO position is now present in practically every company. However, the final quarter of the 20th century was distinct. Prior to 1978, less than 10% of American corporations employed chief finan
