Beyond the screen: building your risk management network at #RAW2023

The power of community is a fundamental aspect of human behavior, deeply rooted in our evolutionary past. Neuroscience tells us that humans are social creatures, driven by the need to connect, collaborate, and learn from one another. When we interact with others, especially those who share our interests and passions, our brains release chemicals like oxytocin and dopamine, which not only make us feel good but also stimulate our creative and cognitive abilities.

As risk management professionals, we understand the value of community in our line of work. The ability to share insights, exchange ideas, and learn from the experiences of others is crucial in understanding the multifaceted nature of risk. That’s where Risk Awareness Week RAW2023 comes in.

RAW2023 isn’t just a conference—it’s a community. Each year, thousands of risk professionals from around the globe come together to engage in insightful conversations, share their experiences, and learn from the best in the field. The diversity of participants—from different industries, backgrounds, and levels of experience—enriches the RAW community and enhances the learning experience.

But building a network isn’t an event—it’s a process. Behavioral economics suggests that repeated actions can become habitual, leading to long-term changes in behavior. By attending RAW annually, you can foster the habit of networking, connect with fellow risk professionals, and build relationships that extend beyond the duration of the conference.

With RAW2023 on the horizon, we’re excited to offer another opportunity for you to grow your network and learn from the best in the business. But networking at RAW is more than just attending sessions—it’s about actively participating in discussions, asking questions, and sharing your own insights. Remember, every interaction is an opportunity to learn and grow.

If you’re new to RAW, don’t hesitate to introduce yourself and engage with other attendees. If you’re a returning participant, reconnect with the peers you met during previous editions and expand your network by meeting new ones. The shared experience of RAW creates a sense of belonging and mutual understanding that fosters productive conversations and enduring connections.

So, are you ready to be a part of the RAW community and enrich your professional network? Join us for RAW2023 this October. As a reminder, early bird tickets are available, providing you with a cost-effective opportunity to invest in your professional development. To register, visit our website

At RAW, you’re not just an attendee—you’re a part of a global community of risk professionals. Let’s learn, grow, and navigate the future of risk together. See you at RAW2023!
