Speaker: Christelle Marais

Since 1991, Christelle has been active in various roles within corporates such as Marsh, Department of Science & Technology, Sasol, South African Post Office and various clients across Africa in governance, company secretarial services, risk management, ethics, business continuity management, risk financing (insurance, cell captives, etc.), litigation, economic crime as well as asset and liability management. Christelle’s career has provided her with experience in various industries including financial services, manufacturing, healthcare, logistics, retail, agriculture, energy, mining and government entities.


She has served in various capacities at subsidiary, joint venture and group levels and has often been co-opted to conduct risk management for major organisational change and restructuring projects. Christelle’s focus is to enable Boards, Risk Committees, Audit Committees, Social & Ethics Committees, EXCOs and divisional teams through risk intelligent programs to govern risk and make informed decisions. She has developed risk management frameworks (policy, strategy, standards, processes and risk maturity evaluations) for various entities and serves as independent Board or committee member.


Session Details 

Some of the largest corporate failures in both the public and private sectors have been laid at the door of Boards of Directors. At the same time, many Directors voice the concern that they are not able to provide adequate governance and oversight due to the disparate approach in which the various assurance providers submit information and reports to the Board.


In addition to this, there is also recognition of the need to pursue ethical and good governance outcomes as opposed to assurance providers ticking boxes in isolation. This session aims to provide delegates with an overview of what each player in the "Risk Governance"-value chain should contribute in terms of the King IV outcomes of (i) ethical culture (ii) good performance (iii) effective control and (iv) legitimacy, and how these should all come together in a robust combined assurance model and transparent integrated reporting.
