Operational risk and resilience webinar

A risk-based approach to operational resilience: When prevention isn’t always better than a cure.

On demand webinar

Prevention is only better than cure when you can prevent.

Our world is facing more and more large impact “grey rhino” events whether arising from climate, social, geopolitical, economic or whatever source of unpreventable events.  As a result, being “operationally resilient” is no longer an option but a necessity for long term sustainability and success.      

In this webinar, Michael Howell and Michael Rasmussen explore what true operational resilience really means and how the change in our global risk landscape pushes our focus more to our ability to withstand shocks, recover from those shocks and be adaptable when those shocks create a new normal. 

They will also explore what this means for traditional risk management when the focus moves from not when but if, to not if but when.
