Featured Article
Compliance – A Business Imperative
Many organisations see compliance as a ‘necessary evil’ and in many cases try to ignore it hoping it will go away. Whether we like it or not compliance is here to stay and it’s not only getting more and more complex in an increasingly complex and connected world, but is having a bigger and bigger impact on business.
Latest Insights
South Africa Risk Report 2016
The South African Risk Report was officially launched on the 10th February at a breakfast presentation hosted by IRMSA at the Johannesburg Country Club. The turnout was excellent. Well done to Gillian and her team! Michael Ferendinos, (Chief Risk Officer of AECI) who is the chairman of the IRMSA risk intelligence committee did a brilliant job of taking us through the salient
points of the 2016 risk report.

The Biggest Risks Are Sometimes the Ones We Never Talk About

By CEO – Tarsus Technologies Group


Wow what a presentation. Thank you Miles. I think everyone will agree that we were spell bound and highly entertained by a real heart to heart, honest and refreshing look into corporate culture. My short write up won’t do justice to what Miles spoke about. Fortunately we videoed the event which will soon be up on the web-site and well worth a look at.
