Seminar on "Enterprise Risk Management - the MTR Practice"

Tuesday, 11 February 2014 at TU103, from 19:00 to 20:00


Risk management is a term that is widely quoted in many industries in Hong Kong nowadays. However, when it comes to enterprise risk management (ERM), the reaction becomes quite different. Heavy industries like construction sites and production plants often take safety risk management as their enterprise priority, whereas investment industries often regard financial risk management as their enterprise priority. Are they not really practising ERM? This sharing session will enable you to answer these questions:

• How is ERM different from risk management?
• How does MTR progress along the ERM journey?
• What are the Standards available?
• What are the key success factors for implementing ERM

The Speaker

Dr. Henry Yu is an electrical engineer by profession. He worked for a power project company in the UK in the early 90’s. He joined MTR in mid 90’s as a Rolling Stock Design Engineer. He then switched to practice safety risk management in mid 2000’s, and then Enterprise Risk Management since 2011. He is now the Senior Manager – Enterprise Risk Management of MTR Corporation Limited responsible for maintaining the ERM framework for the Company and facilitating the management of key risks facing the Company.

He chairs the Hong Kong ERM Roundtable and the UK ERM Roundtable every year, which allow risk managers from different industries to exchange good practices in an open and friendly environment.
