Upcoming events:

  • Meet me holding a Risk Conversation with Norman Marks and guests in Chicago on November 10, 2015. For more details see here. If you cannot make it to Chicago, then we will be holding many more events which will be advertised here and on the Risk Reimagined website as soon as the dates are confirmed. Equally, if you would like your city to appear in the list, let us know here (or on the Risk Reimagined website) and we will see what we can arrange. We can also run the same style of participative programme (sorry program…) for individual corporates, for example risk and IA departments or for boards… Let us know how we can help you raise your game with risk management.
  • The Global Institute of Internal Auditors’ Conference for 2014 is being held in London on 6 to 9 July. Richard Anderson is talking about Complexity in 21st Century Organisations.
  • The IRM is holding a conference to launch their current thought leadership project: Extended Enterprise 2014: Managing risk in the world of ‘VUCA’ – volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity – the days of ‘self- contained’ businesses are over. Virtually all organisations, from start-ups to multi-nationals now rely on a complex and interconnected web of suppliers, services, consultants, energy providers, distributors and many more simply to do business. This ‘extended enterprise’ gives you efficiencies of scale and expertise but it also poses growing multiples of risk. If any part of your network faces unmanaged risk, this has consequences for your own business. Extended Enterprise 2014, run by the world’s leading professional body for risk management, will show you the exact extent of your extended enterprise, the risks and opportunities it presents to your business and how best to manage them. Using IRM’s “Extended EnterpriseResources for Practitioners”, this conference is about practical solutions for managing extended commercial risk. The event will enable you to immediately apply the knowledge of expert speakers and authors of the report to your own organisation. Richard Anderson will be one of the keynote speakers.
  • Richard Anderson will be participating as a keynote speaker at a conference in Athens on 12th November 2014: “From traditional Risk Management to Enterprise Risk Management: a new concept in creating enterprise value”. The conference is intended to provide input about risk trends deriving from the transformational shifts in our economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal and technological systems. It will help organisations to: (a) enhance their overall understanding of enterprise risk management; (b) help organisations realise how risks are interconnected and what impacts they may have; (c) to help entities promote the value of a consistent enterprise-wide rather than a silo- based risk approach; and (d) provide the framework for a new holistic risk management concept that can support effective decision making across all organisational activities. The conference will provide individual presentations as well as panel discussions with the participation of international experts and high level professionals from various industry sectors.
