Risk Appetite Resources

December 2012 Bonus Resource

Over the fall, I was invited to give three talks in which gave me an opportunity to share emerging practices and experience in articulating and applying risk appetite and risk tolerance:

  • Risk Appetite and Risk Tolerance” co-presented by me and Rob Quail of Hydro One Inc. at the RIMS Canada conference in September
  • Making Smart Risk Decisions – Developing Risk Appetite and Risk Tolerances” co-presented by me and Michelle Williamson-Reid of Technical Standards and Safety Authority at the O-RIMS professional development session in October
  • Calibrating Your Nonprofit’s Risk Appetite: Candid Conversations at the Board Table” presented by me for the Nonprofit Risk Management Center’s ‘first Wednesday’ webinar series. You can access the recording at:http://www.nonprofitrisk.org/training/webinars/webinars_2012.aspScroll down to the ‘Risk Appetite’ webinar held on December 5, 2012 (it’s at the end of the list of webinars). Clicking on the orange “Register Now” button will put the webinar in your shopping cart (cost is very reasonableatUS$59). After completing checkout, you will be given a link or directed to the page with the recording. (Note: All proceeds from the sale of this webinar support the Nonprofit Risk Management Center).
