  14. 14. Risk management will become risk leadership Position  risk management will continue to assume a higher priority  strong board involvement advocated to facilitate strategic and enterprise-wide risk  more energy devoted to defining risk appetite, tracking, measuring and analysing risk Challenges  risk ownership and communication at all levels  links between risk management and strategic planning and management  communication between the board and risk management  risk based incentives  risk management talent pool with the right talent  risk forecasting There is evidence suggesting well risk managed businesses are more profitable
  15. 15. Principles of the resilient organisation • Have an exceptional radar • Value and build strong relationships internally and externally • Leaders that are respected and respectful • Have the ability to respond rapidly • Diversified resources • Top Management  believe they should spend more time on strategy, talent and risk • Risk Managers  must develop business leadership skills  become a business discipline  add significant value or stay as fragmented technical people called upon only when needed Source: Roads to Resilience AIRMIC 2014
  16. 16. Challenges to achieving resilience The Risk Manager • Overcoming barriers  don't over analyse • The role is changing  no hiding behind rules and regulations  valued senior advisor  get out and engage • More about culture, behaviour, mind-set and insights • Enablers and behaviours  People and culture  Business structure  Strategy, tactics and operations  Leadership and governance

  19. 19. Challenges • Increasingly complex and rapidly changing world  the pace of complexity and change will increase • Demands for innovative solutions not products  those who do not innovate are at risk • Focus on solution design which is cover driven  not the value added and what is being purchased • Knowledge drain  where are the risk leaders? • Procurement involvement  focus on price at the expense of solution and quality
  20. 20. What every risk manager wants Rapid, hassle-free payment of claims  A more business like approach to claims handling  More pre-claims discussions to clarify how the claims will be paid  The can't pay, won't pay attitude to disappear  Focus on creating a smooth process  Insurers who listen  Claims as a business not a legal issue – litigation a last resort  Risk managers must take control  Opportunities for risk managers to demonstrate they do a great job  The basics have to be right  Roles and responsibilities at times are unclear This is what we buy in the first place Source: Commercial Risk Europe Risk Frontiers Seminar Report 2013
  21. 21. Joined up thinking and action It's too late after the event  Information sharing should improve  Service levels should be defined and agreed  Processes defined and mapped  Processes communicated and embedded  Training of those involved  Communicate, communicate, communicate  Players should be part of the renewal process  Defence  Response There are more than two in this marriage
