Risk Appetite – What's Yours?

Jane Boag B. App Sc (OT), Grad Dip Community Health, GAICD, MICD

Principal Consultant, What's The Plan

After a career in variety of senior and executive roles in health, insurance and risk management, Jane is the name behind “What’s The Plan”; a consultancy focusing on strategic and practical enterprise risk management advisory to support decision making.

Throughout her career, Jane has held a number of non-executive Director roles in Community Health, Aged Care, Disability and the Arts sectors, with a special interest in clinical governance.

Many Boards grapple with risk appetite as a concept and most end up approving generic, motherhood statements that don’t help guide discussion, debate and decision making.

In this practical workshop style presentation, Jane will cover a brief introduction to risk management and where risk appetite fits, and discuss the definitions of Risk Appetite and Tolerance – with practical examples to demonstrate.

Explore why risk appetite seems to be a tricky topic and not well understood, and see the value of well-defined risk appetite statements and learn how to craft them ready for use in your boardroom.
