GLOBAL, ORGANIZATION, April 15, 2024 / -- The DCRO Institute, the world's leading source of risk governance training and credentials for board members and C-suite executives, announced today the award of the prestigious Certificate in Risk Governance® to Valérie A. C. Nolens of Hasselt in Belgium.

Before this role, she advised clients across the Belgium and Luxembourg region as the risk management segment leader for Marsh BeLux and as an independent advisor. She is a former member of the board of directors of BELRIM – Belgian Risk Management Association and is an ISO 31000 certified risk manager. She earned her degree in Criminology from KU Leuven, in Corporate Finance from EHSAL Management School, in Political Science and International Relations from Université catholique de Louvain, and studied corporate sustainability at the Yale School of Management.

"We are very pleased to count her among our credential holders and look forward to her expanding influence on risk governance in Belgium and across the region."

The Certificate in Risk Governance® is awarded to those who have completed The Board Members' Course on Risk® - an intensive 17-course education program and evaluation. The curriculum is designed for current and aspiring board members who seek to advance the governance of risk-taking at their organizations and those who interact with boards. Taught by some of the world's leading figures in risk governance, the program features lessons by nearly 50 board members, C-level executives, and well-known authors from five continents. No course on risk for board members as robust as this - depth, practicality, and global expertise - exists anywhere else.

“Throughout the course, world-class leaders provide insights, relevant references, and pragmatic tools to develop and implement best practices,” said Ms. Nolens. “I gained the knowledge and skills to upscale risk governance beyond compliance, connecting it to the pursuit of corporate goals. Additionally, the DCRO Institute opens the door to a relevant community and ongoing learning from leaders across various sectors,” she continued.
