This course is a non-technical introduction to risk and risk management designed to enable trustees to understand and manage risk generally, but with a focus on risks related to governance, employment, assets, service users and third parties. By the end of the day, you will be better equipped to interact effectively with professional advisors and regulators, hold your executive to account, improve your own decision making and govern your organisation’s risk management activities.
Stephen McAndrew is an experienced consultant and advisor who works with charities, public services and businesses to understand and manage the risks that they face. He spent 10 years developing and implementing risk management and patient safety programmes in the NHS in the UK, and state health and care systems in Ireland, New Zealand and Australia. For over twelve years he has served as a trustee of a number of charities where he has successfully applied risk management to improving safety, quality, sustainability and organisational resilience. He is currently a trustee of Rethink Mental Illness.
This course was full of useful information and a good foundation for future board action.
