Udealor recognised at Conrad Clark awards
Risk Lead, Mouka Limited, Michael Udealor, has emerged as the Risk Manager of the Year 2022.
He emerged the winner at the 6th edition of the Nigerian Risk Leadership Summit and Awards held at the Civic Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Bagging the award has earned with a trip to the United States of America, sponsored by Conrad Clark.
At the event, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Conrad Clark, Joachim Adenusi, urged Nigerian businesses and corporate organisations to have the skill sets to respond to and handle uncertainties.
He argued that the level of uncertainties and crisis in the country required them to have the ability to manage risks.
Speaking on the theme, ‘Tech’ in Risk Governance and Leadership, he said the yearly event was set up to encourage individuals and organisations to celebrate those who have developed creative and innovative solutions to overcome the challenges facing their businesses and organisations.
Adenusi noted that the problem with a crisis is that by the time you get into crisis mode, it would be too late to do risk management. He added that it is important for organisations to be in a position where they have an understanding of risks and preempt possible disasters and threats.
“When there is chaos in any governance system, sense of ownership, responsibility or accountability is completely lost, and where there is no structural intervention to bring chaos into order, the system degenerates and this is where I believe technology and its innovative nuances come in,” he said.
Adenusi stated that technological innovations have the ability to help individuals and organisations take on ownership, become accountable, and assume responsibility, as well as shape behaviours and the way they respond to things.
He said the awards seek to spotlight individuals, groups and brands making life better for the ordinary Nigerian by developing creative and innovative solutions in overcoming the challenges facing businesses and organisations, as well as identifying opportunities in Nigeria.
