Share |

The IRMSA Annual Conference 2018, which is IFRIMA accredited, will be taking place on the 3rd and 4th of October 2018, with a Masterclass on the 5th of October 2018, at Gallagher Convention Centre, Midrand, South Africa.

The theme for the year is ‘BIG THINKERS: Connecting the dots …’

The IRMSA Executive Committee would like to call on members to propose possible presentations that will be of interest to and benefit the IRMSA membership and partners.

Given what we intend to achieve, your proposals should emanate from your successes in Risk Management that is buried in all the noise currently happening in our country, that it is not recognised or heard. 

We have seen some Boards fall, similarly many Boards have thrived because of good Risk Management. Not all leadership are unethical or weak and recognising those that lead well under pressure is making a difference in the South African Risk landscape.

Ultimately, considering the South African context and the role that Risk Management should play in it, we are looking to hear from Big Thinkers in the Risk space.

Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of significance, originality, technical quality and relevance and good presentation skills are required.

Should you be selected to present at the Conference, please note that your presentation will be required two weeks prior to the event taking place

Submissions should be structured in terms of:

  • Case studies outlining recent achievements / Innovations relevant to Risk Management
  • Simulations of systems recently introduced
  • Consider the audience: Attendees to this event represent both Public and Private Sector and include Risk Professionals, Board Members and Executives from South Africa and the international Risk fraternity. 

Possible Topics include, but not limited to:

  • Untold stories of good Risk Management
  • In the current business landscape, the truth about many companies is being revealed – Is the Risk Manager to blame?
  • Success stories where Risk Management impacted the Board
  • Risk Management breaking the paradigm
  • Leadership role that Risk Management should play in an EXCO

Submission Method:

All submissions must be received by the Institute by Friday, 8 March 2018.


Submit your proposal in the below submission form.


For further assistance, please contact the Events Team.

Kind regards
