Enterprise Risk and Trust

Interview with two partners of EY, the global accounting and consulting firm, Will Weerts and Tonny Dekker. Risk management is a key element of any management role. The ability to identify risks before they arise, and then plan a strategy to deal with them is paramount. The consequences of not doing this could be a business failure.

In this interview, both reflect on the importance of risk management, the challenges, and the opportunities, and its relation with trust. They talk about the “Three Lines of Defence model”, IP risks, and the importance of resilience. They describe the “Catch-22” situation risks managers find themselves in, as risk management is too-often treated as a matter of compliance., whereas internal audit is -especially in the US - focused on financial control.

TrustTalk - It's all about Trust

TrustTalk podcast covers all aspects of Trust. Trust is more relevant than ever. Trust is everywhere. Trust has many faces. We will dive in all aspects of trust in the lives of people: trust in technology, social networks, trust in politicians, trust in facts, communications and journalism, the judiciary, your partner, employer or employee. Trust is not something that comes for free, most of the time it requires a lot of effort to gain and once gained, to keep it. Without Trust, nothing works.

Trust takes years to build, seconds to break and forever to repair.
