Integrated, intuitive and cost-effective governance, risk and compliance

22 November 2023, Sydney 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
In partnership

Dinner Location: Rockpool

Good evening…

And welcome to this Meet the Boss event in partnership with IBM & KPMG

Risk management crosses the breadth of an organization – product, cyber, financial, ESG, operational risk, and incident management to name a few. But overseeing and reporting on risk can be a drain on resources, where not having the right tools in place can be a risk in itself.

In global alliance with IBM, KPMG provides this complete managed risk service at a flexible and scalable level that meets your business’s unique needs. With its integrated data, effective reporting and powerful analytics, KPMG Risk Hub helps leaders make insightful risk-based decisions to enhance business performance.

From the entire team at Meet the Boss and IBM & KPMG we look forward to hearing your thoughts and providing you with the right discussions to keep you on course, every course.

Bon Appetit!
