Why Andile Risk Training?
The presenters are all highly experienced in their disciplines. Complex concepts are simplified, focusing on practical applications of the theory in the banking environment. The participatory format encourages brainstorming and discussions.
The focus is on providing Internal Audit and Operational Risk users with practical guidelines to the Treasury environment and the risks that it is exposed to.
