  • Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package.
    Mastering Operational Risk. Theory and Practice in a single package. Boris Agranovich, Calvin Lee Jun 27 2017 2:00 pm UTC 90 mins
    Join me and our guest, Calvin Lee, Operations Director at RISKID, for a lively discussion as we aim to dispel confusion surrounding many of the elements of the Operational Risk framework.


    Operational risk is perhaps the most significant risk organizations face. Virtually every major loss that has taken place during the past 30 years, from Enron, Worldcom and Baring's Bank to the unauthorized trading incident at Société Générale and the subprime credit crisis, has been driven by operational failures.

    Many financial institutions have spent millions of dollars trying to develop a robust framework for measuring and managing operational risk. Yet, in spite of this huge investment, for many firms developing a viable operational risk management (ORM) program remains an elusive goal.

    This webinar is designed for both current students of the “Mastering Operational Risk” - http://www.globalriskacademy.com/p/orm online course and for other busy risk professionals who are interested in studying both theoretical and practical application of ORM but don’t have time to attend in-person classes.

    The goal is three-fold:

    1. Existing students will be able to understand more on how to work with the RISKID tool and get an opportunity to ask questions about the subject matter.
    2. People who are planning to join the course will get some explanation in what is the course about, how the e-learning system works.
    3. People who are just interested to know more about ORM

    During the webinar we will cover:

    1. 3 things most organizations are focusing on right now.
    2. What are the major steps to take control of operational risks.
    3. How to use Collaborative Risk Management tools to conduct your ORM operations and why traditional risk management practices involving risk registers and Excel are not effective anymore.

  • To DC or not DC? Should you implement a Defined Contribution (DC) pension scheme
    To DC or not DC? Should you implement a Defined Contribution (DC) pension scheme Paul Hamilton – Partner and Head of Higher Education and Martin Willis – Associate, Workplace Health and Wealth Jul 11 2017 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    With Defined Benefit (DB) schemes in the Higher Education sector seeing a steady increase in costs, many institutions are now considering whether to move a proportion of their staff onto a DC scheme. DC schemes can introduce a lot of freedom and flexibility for staff members which can be very valuable, however setting up a DC scheme can also be a complicated exercise and may initially create concerns for those staff members being moved. Therefore the key to a successful DC launch is getting the right provider, the right level of benefits and ensuring that you are engaging with staff in a way that helps them to see the potential. During this 45 minute webinar we hope to give you an understanding of the key issues when thinking about setting up a DC scheme.

    To follow or nofollow? That is the question. Nick Gomez & James Barber (Co-Head of SEO & Senior Account Manager) Dec 5 2017 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    To really understand what is going on with follow vs. no follow links, we need to provide a bit of background about how most links work in the realm of SEO. When a site page gets an inbound link, which is a hyperlink pointing to that page, the page gets a small SEO boost. Think of a link as a point, and the more links you have, the more points.
