Improve your risk culture by hearing from Jonathan’s experience and asking questions to validate your current practices.

Building an effective cannabis risk management framework is critical to meet your business objectives. One of the starting elements of effective risk management is an effective risk culture. Risk culture is established when top management creates strong risk values and beliefs that are shared by all members within the business. Starting this process may seem daunting, but breaking it down into specific actions will help.

Join ACCCE for the next community discussion where guest speaker Jonathan Fornaci, the Chief Strategy Officer from Clarion Compliance, will talk about the internal control environment component of the CRMF, the importance of tone from the top in creating a culture of risk, how a Commercial Cannabis Business’s risk appetite and risk strategy impact business objectives, and how to formalize a risk culture through a risk program. Jonathan will also answer any questions the audience may have.
