Don’t miss day one workshops #riskawarenessweek2019

Risk Awareness Week is scheduled for 5 days. Each day will teach you an important aspect of effective decision making. Day one is all about challenging the status quo and unlearning the so called best practices that have been fed to us for years.

Hear from different worlds: co-authors of the ISO31000, decision scientists, statisticians, complexity theorists and executives. They all come to the same conclusion – risk management is not about managing risks, it’s about better decision making. 

Day one will be an important foundation to better appreciate the remaining workshops. During day two we will talk about neuroscience, cognitive biases and culture. Day three is all about quantitative risk analysis. Day four is about the technology that improves decision making and day five is about case studies bring risk and decision making together.

We are here to help. As part of Risk Awareness Week we have created checklists, sample email text and graphics to help you raise risk awareness within your organisation. You can download them here and more is coming every week.
