‘Risk’ is now one of the most important words in the business lexicon, but it
has a wide range of different meanings to different stakeholders.
For those who take ethical shortcuts, it can mean the risk of getting caught:
for the board it can mean the internal and external factors that might impede
success, while for others it can mean downside events that can be insured or
hedged against. For the entrepreneur, risk is not only the thrill on the way to
success, but also relates to the failure of not taking a risk.
Risk and probability underpin all our thinking about the future and yet we
are consistently bad at making forecasts.
This exclusive, live and interactive debate will look at the concept,
perception and evaluation of risk as it affects a wide range of corporate
issues, from economic to cultural.
Guest panelists include:
• Sir Paul Judge, Chairman, RSA Risk Commission
• Richard Raeburn, Chief Executive, Association of Corporate Treasurers
• Ken Lever, previously FD, Tomkins plc
