Risk reporting

Reporting your risks is just as important as trying to prevent them. It is an opportunity to show how an organisation is on top of its risks, and that management and the board understand what the risks are and why they're taking them.

This session will explain risk reporting systems and performance indicators.

Q&A session


Changes to insurance policies following Covid-19

The pandemic has caused many charities to locate and read their insurance policies, in particular any business interruption provisions. Following the pandemic and its implications for charities and insurers, changes are expected to follow.

This session will explore those changes and how they may affect your organisation.


Q&A session


Crisis management and disaster recovery – workshop

This session will not be recorded.

Unexpected events can be a painful shock but there are ways to minimise their impact on your organisation. This workshop will explore what action a charity can undertake in advance to save you time and money when disaster strikes. The session will offer tips for business continuity planning and then go on to how to create and evaluate a crisis management plan tailored to your organisation.
