The UK Finance risk and resilience workshops, in partnership with KRisk, will focus on the people aspect of resilience to help better embed and integrate operational and organisational resilience excellence, enable delegates to develop frameworks, practices and behaviours that instil operational resilience disciplines across the firm. Following the release of the FCA/PRA/BoE operational resilience policy, the academy explores the principles involved in managing risk and enabling a resilient culture while supporting management to integrate and embed operational resilience best practice to the new policy requirements. It makes effective use of organisational knowledge, encourages effective and empowered leaders, and enables organisations to deliver on their commitments in the changing environment.

At its core, the academy is a comprehensive training course where senior managers follow a programme that includes five virtual three hour sessions supplemented by interactive online resources learning best practice approached to integrate organisational, operational and personal resilience. Delegates will work in teams to build structures, frameworks, and processes that will help them to embed a more resilient approach when they return to their organisation. They will have access to dedicated forums to discuss their experiences and receive advice from experienced risk professionals led by real life case studies.
