Our History

20 years and we’re just getting started.

The whole board should consider joining an organization like OCEG

  • I've been to countless seminars, have achieved several certifications, but only Project: Risk Leader has helped me understand myself and develop my people skills. Those skills are just as important as my GRC knowledge.

  • This was an awakening for me. I was speaking the wrong language. I was talking about risk and everyone else was talking about growth. Now I know how to connect the two. What a difference!

  • I never thought of my role as being a sales role. OCEG helped me see that, then they gave me the tools to build and sell the business case for risk.
