FM Global CEO to Host RIMS Session

Strategic Resilience: Taking Your Seat at the Table

Risk management decisions become increasingly more critical to organizational resilience every day. Charged with protecting against new threats resulting from climate change, cyber risk and the breakdown of highly sophisticated equipment, risk managers have much riding on their shoulders.

At the 2017 RIMS (Risk and Insurance Management Society) Annual Conference & Exhibition, FM Global's president and chief executive officer, Tom Lawson, discusses how risk managers can add value by adjusting their approach to risk management.

Strategic Resilience: Taking Your Seat at the Table
Tuesday, April 25, 2017

Course Description

Becoming a strategic advisor within the highest ranks of your company, and elevating your career, require you to put yourself in the shoes of your senior executives. More than ever, you must understand their concerns when it comes to organizational resilience, which necessitates a broad understanding of how the world (not just your marketplace) will evolve, and the effect this could have on your business. It calls for proactively evaluating and informing executives of critical emerging risk factors that may impact the future success of strategic decisions. Likewise, strategic advisement requires the ability to effectively communicate your risk insights to your senior leaders and board members.

In this session, you'll gain insight into:

  • A framework that allows your organization to begin enhancing its strategic resilience.
  • The type of information you can provide that can be used by executive management to influence decisions and impact your business' strategic plan.
  • A compelling means to communicate risk management effectiveness to your executives and board.
