The Risk-in 2019 Basel, Switzerland event (photos below) was terrific - I did a preview of some of the concepts in my forthcoming book Gloom to Boom one of which is that we are moving beyond ESG to what I call ESG+T. Just as the world is finally accepting ESG (environment, social, governance), I suggest we move to ESG+T (ESG + Technology) - because there are just too many new and rising tech issues, risks and opportunities that do not fit neatly under the ESG moniker. Do you agree?
Relating to Gloom to Boom, I am truly excited to share that it now has two Forewords - one from Amedee Prouvost and Jorge Dajani of the World Bank (as announced in last month's Risk2Value News), and another, wholly unexpected Foreword from long-time friend, Andrew Weissmann, former Senior Assistant Special Counsel to Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III. Together these two Forewords provide the point and the counterpoint to the essence of my book - leaders transforming risk into resilience and value. I simply couldn't be more grateful and can't wait to share these Forewords with you.
I am also very pleased to share some excellent new publications by several friends and colleagues:
Australia-based GEC Risk colleague, Alex Newton, just launched her excellent new book The Business of Human Rights which I had the privilege to review and endorse (photos below) - congratulations Alex!
Seasoned ethics, compliance & risk executive, Matthew B. Pachman wrote a very insightful piece for NACD's Directorship May-June Magazine on what boards need to do to help their companies recover from ethics scandals
Reputation risk and insurance expert Dr. Nir Kossovsky also wrote a terrific piece for the same issue of Directorship on governance implications of recent US Department of Justice strategic shifts affecting boards and directors
