WilliamDevineEsquire offers global innovators a new model for recognizing and capitalizing on legal, regulatory and enterprise risks.

 

The model is a catalyst.  It helps people recognize not only the often overlooked risks that lie beyond an enterprise's legal duties, but also the opportunities that accompany those risks.

 

WDE empowers the enterprise to create a more valuable economic performance and become a more durable company.

 

WDE empowers the innovator to move into a larger role as a global economic leader.

Investors want companies they fund to possess signficant innovation, leadership and risk management skills.  Of the investors responding to the PricewaterhouseCoopers Investor Survey in 2017:

 

•  95% report that innovation skills are somewhat or very important for companies. 

 

•  92% report that leadership skills are somewhat or very important.

 

•  89% report that risk management skills are somewhat or very important.

 

Two takeaways:

 

First, investor demand for risk management expertise is nothing new:  94% of investors responding to the PwC Investor Survey in 2013 reported that risk management expertise is the most important skill a director can offer, ahead of operational, financial and industry expertise.

 

Second, going forward, wise leaders will make a strong effort to monitor the interplay between enterprise innovation and regulatory risk.
