                                   How to Talk to the C-Suite about Risk                             

                                   Robert Plenderleith

                                   Vice-President, Valuations, Modelling and Disputes

 

Your C-Suite wants to hear from you! In a 2014 survey of US CEOs only 42% said that their risk management function was well prepared to capitalize on transformative global trends. And 73% of CEOs said that they are executing or planning changes to their risk management approach. The C-Suite is focused on emerging risk, but confused about the size of the exposures and the available techniques for measuring and managing them. How can risk managers ensure that they stay relevant and elevate their communications with senior management? In this session we'll present an analytical framework used in the risk consulting business to guide C-Suite discussions, and share some ideas about how risk managers can build on the framework to improve risk management and transfer discussions at the highest levels within the organization.

 

SPEAKER:                 Bob has over 10 years of experience with insurance and litigation claims working as part of PwC’s claims practice. He is a Chartered Professional Accountant as well as a Chartered Business Valuator with a focus on providing business valuation and advisory services to a wide range of organizations. Bob’s valuation experience includes providing companies with business valuation advice for a variety of purposes such as independent valuations, corporate reorganizations, financial reporting, strategic planning, tax and estate planning, and shareholder transactions.

From a claims perspective Bob has worked for both policy holders and insurers on insurance claims and litigation support engagements focusing on Canadian claims. His insurance claims work involves stock-loss/inventory, equipment losses in accordance with policy limitations, as well as business interruption losses in wide variety of industries with a focus in agricultural losses. Bob also has experience with claims involving hotels, resorts and related tourism businesses.

PROGRAM:               Business Continuity Management (BCM)

                                    Kenton Friesen

                                    Senior Business Continuity Coordinator at Manitoba Public Insurance

 

Business Continuity Management (BCM) is important to ensure mission critical operations can be continued under adverse conditions or disruption resulting from uncontrollable circumstances. When the 'normal state' of operations is disrupted, 'normal state' security processes and controls are directly impacted. Business Continuity practitioners assess risks and collaborate to ensure that plans are in place to continue operations under a variety of adverse 'non-normal' scenarios. This presentation will provide an overview of BCM and explore the interactions/interfaces between it and risk management.

 

SPEAKER:                 Kenton is a continuity and emergency management professional with experience identifying, applying, and managing corporate resiliency strategies. He is experienced with leading and/or facilitating cross-functional project teams with the mandate of increasing organizational resiliency, including the development of continuity / preparedness training programs, crisis communication and/or urgent mass notification systems, quality improvement, and client or stakeholder relations. Over the past 10 plus years Mr. Friesen has been a trusted continuity and emergency management advisor to Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI), the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg Regional Health Authority (WRHA), and Dillon Consulting Limited. His credentials include a B.A. (Geography), B.Sc. (Business Computing), Certified Emergency Manager (CEM), Certified Business Continuity Professional (CBCP), and is a Member of the Business Continuity Institute (MBCI). Additionally, his affiliations include the Disaster Recovery Information Exchange (DRIE) Central Chapter, International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) Canada Council, and the Disaster Recovery Institute Canada (DRIC).

MARIMS Vision: To be recognized as a strong, vibrant, inclusive association promoting all aspects of Risk Management.

 

MARIMS Mission: To promote the growth and development of Risk Management through education and networking.

PROGRAM: Southwest Rapid Transitway Project – Risk and Reward

                     Scott Payne, City of Winnipeg

 

Scott’s presentation will address aspects of risk management in delivering a Public Private Partnership (P3) project in Winnipeg. The presentation will focus on the Southwest Rapid Transitway project, Winnipeg’s largest and one of the most debated capital projects in the City’s history.

This presentation will discuss the City’s decision to use a Public Private Partnership, a growing procurement model for mega projects across Canada, to transfer and minimize risk to the City on this complex infrastructure project. The presentation will address challenges in the delivery of this model and the benefits it can provide, which for the City resulted in a bid savings of over $120 million on construction costs alone.

 

SPEAKER: Scott Payne is a Public Administrator at the City of Winnipeg with over 30 years’ experience. He is currently the Manager of Winnipeg Transit’s Asset Management Office (AMO). Under Scott’s direction, the AMO is responsible for Capital Investment Planning, Project Management, and delivery of major projects such as the second phase of Winnipeg’s rapid

transit network, the Southwest Rapid Transitway (Stage 2) and the Pembina Hwy underpass project.

Prior to joining Winnipeg Transit, Scott had been actively providing program management and flood management services for the City’s Public Works Department and has survived numerous flood events as the City’s Flood Coordinator. Needless to say he likes challenges and stressful jobs.

Scott’s education includes a background in Civil Engineering, Project Management and Public Administration.

This Month's Rims Perk Program: Crime Pays - Recovering Employee Dishonesty Claims

Speaker: Christopher J. GiovinoDirector Aon Risk Solutions | Global Risk Consulting | Forensic Analysis and Claims including Global Practice Leader for forensic investigations, crime and fidelity claims and Cyber Evaluation Risk Quantification (CERQ).

 

With occupational crime and fraud on the rise, more employers are falling victim to embezzlement and other types of employee theft. While such crimes can involve anyone from an hourly worker to a senior executive, those with access to an organization's finances often turn out to be the perpetrators.

Significantly, the size of the organization doesn't matter. Every type of enterprise, from a main street stationery store to a global corporation is at risk of employee fraud and theft. Unfortunately, charitable organizations and nonprofits are frequent targets.

 Chris will be speaking to us on Employee Dishonesty Claims and how to be successful in recovering these claims through forensic investigations, claims preparation and advocacy.

Special Recognition to Past MaRIMS Founding Member... Reg Pitchford

After serving in the Royal Air Force medical service during World War II, Reginald Pitchford worked his way up in the Canadian risk and insurance fields, becoming a champion of risk management in Manitoba and the RIMS Manitoba Chapter (MARIMS) before it even achieved chapter status in 1976. His work as corporate risk manager at United Grain Growers Insurance Department was characterized by his belief that a primary risk function established a strong foundation, ultimately leading to one of the first successful applications of a series of risk processes that would later be called Enterprise Risk Management. In the early years of MARIMS, he was critical in its growth, serving as chapter president while also holding the position of president of the Insurance Institute of Manitoba and sitting on the Council of the Insurance Institutes of Canada, and taught during the 1960s and ’70s as a Fellow of the Insurance Institute of Canada.

The Risk Management Hall of Fame can be found on-line HERE.
