Interactive sessions

“The interactive aspect of the conference means presenters talk to you not at you. The presenters are approachable and will interact long after the presentations are over.”

One thing that makes Risk Awareness Week stand apart from other conferences is its interactivity. Watching the sessions live allows you to post questions and create a dialogue with speakers. There are no sales pitches, and every talk is designed to be thought provoking and useful. Speakers are happy to interact and answer questions even once sessions have finished, giving you total access to experts and peers in the risk management field.

Practical knowledge

“Most of what is presented can be applied to the participants career field almost immediately.”

“While all the presenters have firms, practices, or companies they work for, there are no plugs that their stuff is better than anyone else’s and no sales pitch. It’s actually information I can use, not information I can use if I buy their software.”


“It’s available for everyone, at every level, with truly actionable advice/tips”

The sessions are designed to be accessible, practical and usable. This means the knowledge you gain can be applied in your own role. Many speakers share their own excel templates or models, giving you tools that can be applied in any area of risk management. There are also plenty of case studies, where senior risk managers share approaches and lessons learnt from real life problems.

Amazing content

“The different fields represented means you will learn something new”

“Simple. Year 2 showed how to apply Monte Carlo to heist. Year 3 how to kill James Bond. Year 4 will have zombies. “

Session topics are interesting, current, and practical. Attendees say they always learn something new, and each day is geared to helping you overcome the greatest challenges facing risk managers.
