Warren Buffet said: “Risk comes from not knowing what you are doing”. Today’s uncertain and complex business environment not only requires the right people for the job but also the right training and the right skills. The Greek dramatist Aeschylus said: “I am not afraid of storms for I am learning to sail my ship”.
Aligned to our Vision to become Africa's leading and most respected provider of business risk management training, we have developed the RiskFox™ range of training courses in Enterprise Risk Management to equip directors, executives, senior managers, risk managers, and risk practitioners to develop competence and confidence in the governance and management of risk.
All our courses are designed and presented by experts in their field and are regularly updated to ensure they remain relevant and contemporary. Training courses are usually held at our boutique training facility in the rural country setting of Kyalami but can also be held at a client arranged venue.
We have applied for SETA accreditation through FASSET and are currently undergoing a rigorous assessment process to ensure that our clients receive the quality training we promise.
The following courses are currently being offered:

RiskFox™ - Everyday Business Risk Management
For business executives, senior managers, and line managers who need to manage risk
This two-day experiential learning workshop is designed to equip delegates who are not risk managers with the know-how to competently and confidently take responsibility for the risks in the area of the business entrusted to them, and to take up their responsibility in the company's risk management process. The workshop is intended to ensure delegates leave knowing what their responsibilities are, and the next steps they need to take, to ensure risk management is being practiced in order to improve the quality of decision-making, reduce uncertainty, and improve strategic and operational performance.
RiskFox™ - Raising the Bar of Business Risk Management
For CRO’s, risk managers, and risk practitioners
This two-day interactive workshop is designed to build the capacity and confidence of new risk managers or enhance the value of existing risk managers. The course is designed to equip delegates with more advanced risk management know-how to carry out the risk management responsibilities entrusted to them and to take a leading role in growing the risk management function into a mature and value-adding unit.
RiskFox™ - The Governance of Risk
For boards, directors, and senior executives
This one-day seminar is designed to equip boards, individual directors, and senior company executives to approach their responsibility for the governance of risk with increased confidence, and to effectively delegate the responsibility for designing, implementing, and monitoring the risk management plan to management. The seminar is intended to ensure delegates understand their responsibilities, and what actions they need to direct, to ensure a compliant risk management process is established to enhance the quality of decision-making, reduce uncertainty, and contribute to the creation of sustainable shareholder value.
