A very rare event for people trying to learn quantitative side of risk management, highly recommended by Alex Sidorenko

I rarely get excited by a risk management conference, but today… something special happened. This is such rare RM2 gem in the otherwise boring RM1 world.

probabilitymanagement.org and Sam Savage are bring quantitative risk management to every household. Over the last decades Sam was explaining complex math in a language executives easily understand and relate to.
