ACCA Hong Kong Annual Conference 2005
RISK MANAGEMENT –KEY TO SUCCESS
About the Conference
With the growing business opportunities in mainland China, there are also potential risk exposures for stakeholders and shareholders .It is therefore mot surprising that senior managers are being urged to put risk management higher on their agenda. However how can they assure that risks are being properly managed and that the interests of stakeholders are being adequately protected ?
As the ability for senior executives and finance professionals to manage risk effectively is just as generating profits for their companies .ACCA Hong Kong Annual Conference 2005-「RISK MANAGEMENT –KEY TO SUCCES」 will equip attendees with the necessary knowledge and information to deal with risks more efficiently and enable them to be more risk conscious.
「ideally risk management should be embedded into normal management rather than be an 「add on」 , Organisations work best if everyone in them is aware of their objectives, the risks which exist and acts accordingly 「-Paul Moxey ,ACCA, Head of Risk Management and Corporate Governance.
