The Institute of Risk Management provided our organization with total of seven days customized advanced Risk Management Masterclass training programs. I am excited to add these tools to my toolbox and appreciated the commitment the trainers had to our learning. They were open-minded about our feedback and our needs and continued to tailor the experience for our team throughout the training. I am reminded to be aware of my perspective, recognize the impact of my actions and proceed purposefully. I look forward to the renewed energy among the management group going forward. Thank you Dr Kamran Ahmed Siddiqu, Imam Abdulrahman Bin Faisal University
The IRM delivered an insightful tailored course to Protiviti people across our European offices. In an efficient manner (two sessions of 4 hrs each) we received valuable insights into climate risk management and enjoyed the discussions between the trainers and our diverse group of experts. The course helped us benchmark our own knowledge, understand the available good practices and establish a common language amongst the participants. We appreciated the deep knowledge and the energy of the trainers, the interactive format in a remote setting, and the amount of references to relevant and credible materials that can help us in our further development of Protiviti’s European ESG Risk Community.
