Today’s risk manager faces more challenges than ever before. The past several years have produced a series of extremely disruptive conditions for the profession, no matter the industry. These include extremely contagious diseases, increasing geopolitical violence, disrupted trade patterns, and a major increase in cyber risks.
The question “what if” and scanning beyond the horizons is by necessity a vital part of the risk professional’s day. And beyond the short to medium term, when asked “what next” they undoubtably see the need to focus on the looming challenge of climate change, which will become a central part of every risk manager’s role as low carbon transition speeds up; but do we have access to the training and technical resources required?
Finally, the immediate here and now provides little comfort either, as all organizations face a deteriorating economic landscape, which will require us to re-think our purpose and business models if we are to survive the latest downturn.
Join us for this half day event where you can network with peers, chat to our exhibitors and hear about all the latest trends in enterprise risk management.
This event is a MEMBER only event.

Guest Speaker: Complexity isn't complicated
‘Complexity isn’t complicated’ is Stephen’s theme and he will the use the case study “Miracle on the Hudson”, when Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger successfully conducted an emergency landing on water in the Hudson River. Trainings and checklists are a typical risk management tool – and are vital, but these cannot always be considered for a one-of-a-kind crisis situation. Stephen will use examples from the case study to talk about how good judgement over procedures can be used in a crisis. Some crises involve what Carver calls “agile change management”, which requires moving faster than traditional risk management tools, such as using risk registers, can operate. As a crisis manager, Carver will talk to attendees about how the analogy for this situation might also apply to Pete “Maverick” Mitchell in Top Gun: Maverick, who pushed the envelope as a courageous test pilot confronting the ghosts of his past and his deepest fears, culminating in a mission that demanded the ultimate sacrifice from those who chose to fly it.

Keynote: Global uncertainty and volatility continues: What next?
The Lloyd’s Futureset reports published this year and created in partnership with Aon, provide insights on the medium to long term impacts of the Ukraine crisis on the risk landscape. This keynote session will bring the insights in the report up to date to provide examples of the challenges that organisations are facing today and how they are adjusting their risk management approaches in response.

Scanning the risk horizon: What if?
What is horizon scanning? Why is it important? And how can we do it and reap the benefits?
This thirty minute session is a whistle stop tour through good practices for horizon scanning, followed by stories from the real world, and a look into the future itself.

Panel: Supply chain volatility: What now?
Supply chain volatility has become significantly disruptive since the pandemic. Not only are supply chains increasingly at risk now due to geopolitical tensions – they are also being targeted by a range of threat actors, often in high-risk locations. As supply chains become increasingly integrated with the digital sphere, they are also at greater risk of cyber attacks, leading organisations to re-evaluate their supply chain security. What can risk professionals do to build greater supply chain resilience for their organisations?

Panel: Climate change: leveraging data science, technology and engineering: what now?
Acute physical climate risk is one of the most severe exposures facing today’s organisations. This is especially true in the northern hemisphere where average temperature, and as such disrupted precipitation and weather systems are likely to be highly concentrated. Moreover, what we see today is not the worst of it. As climate works on the lag principle, today’s high emission levels are likely to lead to even more extreme events in the second half of the century. Under these conditions, how do we increase adaptability and resiliency, leveraging data science, cutting edge technology and top-quality engineering?
