Thrive On Risk
The MetricStream GRC Summit 2013 kicks off in the next few hours. We have a great line up of speakers from the industry and professionals across the enterprise footprint responsible for building and managing successful, well-governed, compliant, and risk-aware organizations, today and into the future.
General Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.), former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, will deliver the keynote address at the MetricStream GRC Summit 2013,
During his role as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George H.W. Bush, Powell successfully led the country through numerous crises, including Operation Desert Storm in 1991. As Secretary of State, Powell led the State Department’s successful resolution of multiple regional and civil conflicts. Throughout his service, Powell used leadership and diplomacy to build trust, forge alliances, and transform regions.
As one of the world’s most highly regarded and respected leaders, Powell will draw from his experience to discuss the role of effective leadership in risk management. He will deliver a keynote address on the theme “Thrive on Risk: Lessons in Leadership” which will cover three key areas – first, how important it is for individuals and organizations to take risks to achieve their potential; second, how to effectively balance risk and opportunity with a strategic approach; and third, the role of leadership in successful risk taking.
This two-day event will bring together GRC professionals, thought leaders, analysts, and MetricStream executives, partners and customers who will share real world perspectives, industry trends, and actionable insights.
Summit highlights will include: keynote addresses, information packed industry panel discussions, function specific case studies, cutting-edge technology showcases & networking opportunities.
