Hosted by Coupa Software, The Evolution of Risk Management Virtual Roundtable offered an intimate online forum for finance and procurement leaders from mid-sized organisations across the DACH region, in which we will be discussing the new era of risk management within the finance function.

The session will last one hour, will be professionally moderated and will encourage participation from the other attendees. Our discussions are designed to be very inclusive and interactive, ensuring to leverage the wealth of experience from your senior peers.

A New Era for Risk Management

Finance leaders have seen a significant evolution in their roles and responsibilities over the last few years. Geopolitical uncertainty, tough regulation and rapidly advancing technology have all put greater pressure on companies, in turn placing greater demands on financial and risk management functions. 

It is certain that the resulting economic disruptions will be felt throughout 2020 and beyond. Finance executives have the opportunity to lead their organisations through these challenging times, taking action today to thrive in the years to come. Now more than ever, they must be risk-aware and take a holistic approach to the business, striking a balance between the operational and strategic risks.

  • How can finance leaders ensure they understand and account for the myriad of risks facing the organisation without losing focus on working capital management? 
  • How can they adapt their role to be more forward-facing and embrace the strategic mindset necessary for building business resilience? 
  • What role do people, processes and technology play in all of this?
