The Butterfly Effect and The Black Swan - Risk Management in a Brave New World

Date:   10th November 2017
Time:

08:00 - 17:00

Location:

Sarova Panafric Hotel, Nairobi

The Institute of Risk Management invites you to our 2nd Annual East Africa Risk Leaders Conference.

The recent past has seen political, social and technalogical upheaval, focing us to re-examine some basic assumptions about the world we live in. Previously large institutions have been brought down to their knees, results of a Presidential election in Kenya have been nullified and there have been changes within the banking sector including interest rate capping. Subtle changes that were ignored have produced chaotic results and repeated failures have led to a loss of trust in ‘experts’, risking the livelihoods of thousands of people.

This is a free event with limited spaces.
