VIEW: The stage is set...

Firstly, I would like to congratulate all of those who have been shortlisted in the CIR 10th anniversary Risk Management Awards. The Institute is proud to be supporting this prestigious event and we look forward to celebrating with you all at the dinner and ceremony on the 6th November.

It must be the year for tenth anniversary celebrations, as we at the IRM will also be celebrating this milestone for our own Risk Leaders event: A decade of discovery and disruption, to be held on 14th November at the Inmarsat in London, and sponsored by Barclays. We’ve a stellar line up including Jim Winters, managing director, Global Fraud Management, Barclays; John Scott, head of security education, Bank of England; Robert J Trent PhD, Professor of Supply Chain Management, Lehigh University; Professor Daniel Ralph, Judge Business School, Cambridge University; and Lakshmi Shyam-Sunder, chief risk officer, World Bank.

Two of our senior management team have just returned from a business trip to India where they have been working hard with ITI Edvest (our strategic delivery partner in India). They attended a Risk Management Conclave that was organised by the Institute of Directors in India in association with IMC Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The conclave was supported by industry experts who came together as panellists to discuss and deliberate on the increasing importance of risk management and its education in India. With the challenges being faced by Indian businesses, rise in corporate governance issues, disruption in traditional business models and volatility in the Indian economy, risk management has gained a lot of traction. We were delighted to support this event.

We’ve some exciting developments ahead with the review of our Diploma syllabus, launch of a new qualification next Autumn and also our submission to OFQUAL for accreditation. We’re also developing a new learning management system and introducing multiple choice questions for our Certificates for 2020 and will be taking the Institute of Operational Risk’s Certificate in Operational Risk Management into our portfolio.
