Reflect, react, restart

Posted By IRMSA Insight, 18 February 2014

In November 2013, the Institute of Risk Management South Africa held its annual conference.  This event is always a highlight in IRMSA’s calendar and the theme for this year was to Reflect, React and Restart. With Peter Ndoro as the Master of Ceremonies and in usual IRMSA style, powerful speakers and opinion leaders were at hand to share their insights, views and opinions on a variety of risk related topics. The event included some engaging Panel discussions and an effective mix of local and international speakers.
This conference was held over two days and some of the major themes were: Protection of Personal Information; Labour Risks; Regulatory Risks; Crime and security risks; Business and political risks; risks to boards and executives as well as risk management in practice. Some of the high profile speakers at the event were: 702’s Bruce Whitfield, Clem Sunter, Justice Malala and IRMSA’s Risk Manager of the year for 2013 Gordon Howes.
This year was particularly a special conference as it also marked IRMSA’s 10th year anniversary. Officially opening the conference, new IRMSA President Sheralee Morland reflected on some of the achievements of the organisation over the past decade. Going forward, Morland assured members that Risk Management growth and professionalisation will remain critical focus areas of IRMSA.
Morland furthermore thanked Executive Committee and members, support and focus over the past 10 years. Part of the challenges that the speakers thoroughly explored was the evaluation of circumstances today and what’s likely to unfold in the immediate future and how this will affect the work of Risk Management professionals.
A critical factor of the conference is that program designed for all IRMSA members, noting different backgrounds, experiences and approaches in Risk Management. Another important elements of the conference was the opportunity to network connect and stay in touch with other members of IRMSA.

We will be featuring summaries of the presentations, so look out for those in future IRMSA Newsflashes.
