9th Annual Risk Leaders Conference 

The IRM’s 2017 research report Setting the Risk Agenda: Exploring the future of the risk management profession highlighted a number of key issues facing the risk management profession. Among these were: Technological change, including AI and big data; geopolitical volatility; culture and behaviour; and professional practice.

Risk Leaders 2018 will provide a forum for debate and discussion of these issues, and more, as the profession prepares itself for the future. The conference will also hear the results of an original piece of research by Cambridge University’s Judge Business School that was sponsored by the IRM into the modern practice of risk management.

This 9th annual event brings together leading thinkers and practitioners from across the risk management profession to address key emerging issues - such as political risk, technology, data, and behaviour and ethics – and present original research.
