Institute of Risk Management Forum Attracts International Speakers

Institute Of Risk Management : 04 March, 2010  (Technical Article)
Risk Management experts from across the globe are convening at the IRM Forum taking place in April at Keele University in the UK
IRM's new Global Risk Management Professional Development Forum has attracted over 30 international risk experts and thought leaders from seven countries to be speakers and panellists.

Opening speaker is Gert Cruywagen from Tsogo Sun Group, South African Risk Manager of the Year 2009, wildlife enthusiast and TV personality, who will be speaking on 'Jungle Risk Management'. Later on Day One a high powered "Question Time" panel will respond to questions from delegates about current challenges in risk management. Panel members include

* 'Whistleblower' Paul Moore, former head of regulatory risk at HBOS and now an independent consultant
* Bruce Hepburn, MD of Mactavish group, the authors of recently published research suggesting serious deterioration in company risk profiles caused by the recession
* Emma McConachie, specialist risk and governance talent expert
* Stephen Roberts, UK leader of Marsh's Strategic Risk Practice
* Mark Schaedeli, Head of Risk Management at Nestlé, and
* Amout van der Veer, Chief Risk Officer at Reed Elsevier

Day Two sees the return by popular request of Stephen Carver, Cranfield lecturer, project management expert and storyteller, this time turning his attention to the Battle of Britain as the supreme lesson of managing complex programmes under conditions of extreme uncertainty, and the conference concludes with Steve Head of Headstart, performance management specialist, who will energise delegates to take away what they have learned and put it into practice.

The forum will also feature a comprehensive range of specialist workshops on topics essential to risk management, with workshop leaders travelling in from India, Denmark, Norway, South Africa and Malta to share their expertise.

Steve Fowler, Chief Executive of IRM, said "The line-up of global risk experts that we have managed to attract to our event underlines the IRM's growing stature as the leading international provider of professional development opportunities in practical enterprise risk management. There is no substitute for learning from fellow-risk professionals so our Forum is a 'must attend' event for all those interested in improving their performance and developing their careers."

The Forum takes place on 19-21 April 2010 at Keele University, Staffordshire, UK. Online booking is now open via the IRM website
