Monica Merrifield is an internationally recognized strategic risk executive who will share practical approaches, techniques and tools to build risk management capabilities in your organization. Join us for this timely session to gain insights on how to navigate uncertainty with success, while achieving the impact we desire for our communities.

What's a webinar?

Think of a webinar as a way to attend a conference without leaving your workplace or home. Using your computer and telephone, you can hear a presentation (like a conference call) and also see the presenter's slides (watching over an internet connection). You won't be able to see the presenter, or others attending the program -- and they won't be able to see you. You will be able to ask questions - the webinar can be as interactive as you want to make it. The webinar will also be recorded and made available to you after the session, so there's no need for frantic note-taking!
