This course will be informative and interactive. Participants will take away some new techniques and a refreshed understanding of how to be an effective senior executive.

Importantly, this will not be a ‘classroom based’ course, but rather facilitated learning, using case study learning methodologies, and while the course will be based on the most recent thinking in risk and governance, the approach will emphasise application and practicality.

Central to the effectiveness of the course will be the use of both business and government based case studies. Participants will be able to choose one or the other type of case study to use over the duration of the course. This will make the course as relevant as possible to each participant.
