"What it takes to be a qualified risk manager?" seminar

The captioned member event held on 24 March 2009 was a huge success. It brought over 150 practitioners and risk professionals together from the banking and finance industry

Over 150 participants were immensely benefited and inspired from the close dialogue with the guest speakers, who shared their invaluable views from the perspectives of an employer, a trainer and a practitioner. They are Mr. Jeremy Gwee (Head of Capital Management HSBC), Mr. Fred Au (Principle Consultant of Risk Partner and Master Trainer of FRM) and Mr. Jack Tsang (President of AAFM Hong Kong).  Everyone enjoyed the speakers' insights and they got professional advice on how to position themselves for the future. "It was inspiring and energizing and I now realize that risk management is more of an art than a science.” shared Ms. Shirley Ha, an invited guest of KORNERSTONE.  Ms. Elaine Lam, a member of KORNERSTONE, added" I appreciated the seminar's sharing and open discussions especially in view of the current financial turmoil that we are facing today."

"I would like to thank everyone's support for this seminar.  Without the inspiring speakers, the active participation of the audience and an excellent host who is also our member - Ms Sandra Fung, the event would not be so successful. We look forward to the participation of our members and guests in more of our future member events!" concluded Ms Venus Mak, Event Manager of KORNERSTONE.
