Reputation Risk Management Master Class
- Location: Apollo Hotel, Randburg, Johannesburg - http://www.apollohotel.co.za/
- Date and time: 4 - 5 June 2012 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
- International Risk Management Studies now show that Reputation Risk is regarded as the highest-order and most difficult & volatile ‘meta’ risk that an organisation can encounter. (Typical international examples – BP in the Gulf of Mexico, Goldman-Sachs and the Tiger Woods debacles).
This Master Class unpacks Reputation Risk*, views it from four different perspectives (inc. Asset, Stakeholder & Compliance focus) and closes the gap between intangible and tangible risk mitigation and response strategies in an organisation.
The Master Class takes Reputation Management, Risk Management, Communication & PR, Crisis Management & Crisis Communication, Ethics & Corporate Responsibility best practices into account and suggests appropriate mitigation strategies to protect, defend and deal with reputation risk events of any kind.
If you’re responsible for ensuring that your organization responds to and survives any form of reputation risk event, this workshop covers all the key steps necessary to protect and defend your organization’s biggest asset and yet, most potential volatile risk.
