About the course

Every business is a risky business.

Risks and real-life practical problems are faced by all of us on a daily basis, which impact on both individual and organisational performance. So it is vitally important to be able to use the appropriate management tools to eliminate or mitigate risks and resolve problems and avoid their repetition. We therefore recommend that every business professional should attend this stimulating and thought-provoking seminar that includes presentations, worked examples and group discussion, promoting exchange of ideas to provide an enjoyable and interactive experience.

The Instructor’s own commercial and industrial experience plus many other real-world business scenarios are shared throughout this exciting seminar that is presented in a very hands-on way to suit individuals with varying levels of financial knowledge and experience. Its very user-friendly approach enables participants to reinforce the use of the tools and techniques you need to identify various forms of risk, use root cause analysis, determine the source of resultant business problems, and then use the tools and techniques of the problem-solving process.
