I attended the Solvay School of Economics Enterprise Risk Management Programme to further my knowledge of Risk Management as a new Risk Manager. The training was very well organised and conducted by recognised lecturers in the subject who relayed a wealth of experience and knowledge, delivered in a manageable and structured format. I have been able to adopt all aspects of the course and successfully integrate them, which importantly has developed the Risk Culture in the business. I would recommend the course to other professionals looking to gain further knowledge of Risk Management and how to put it into practice.

As a worldwide renowned construction company, BESIX attaches great importance to Risk Management. From this perspective, the programme gives a comprehensive outlook on the different disciplines involved in Enterprise Risk Management. Besides the training modules, it also gives the opportunity to exchange with the other participants on how risk management is organised in their companies and enables to expand your global network!
