Risk managers need to learn to be proud of their contribution to the overall success of the company. Once the company achieves positive results by managing certain risks to a high standard, it is up to the risk manager to share this success both internally and externally. This can be done by presenting at various conferences and industry events or publishing small articles in relevant magazines or web publications. Here is a list of places where we normally publish our work:
- RISK-ACADEMY web portal www.riskacademy.wordpress.com
- G31000 LinkedIn discussion forum https://www.linkedin.com/groups/1834592
- Corporate Compliance Insights corporatecomplianceinsights.com
- Continuity Central continuitycentral.com
- CERM ® RISK INSIGHTS http://insights.cermacademy.com/
- Insurance Thought Leadership http://insurancethoughtleadership.com/
Sharing information about risk management in the company will raise risk management awareness internally and reinforce trust and transparency with suppliers, contractors, key clients and regulators externally. Clearly this is only applicable to non-confidential, public information that does not include any trade secrets or other sensitive information.
A number of the risk managers we have interviewed suggested that sharing information about risks and their mitigation with banks, investors, insurance companies and suppliers can result in significant cost savings on finance, insurance and the cost of goods.
Another good idea is to participate in annual risk management awards sessions, like the one organised by G31000 globally or by the Institute of Strategic Risk Analysis in Decision Making (ISAR) in Russia.
