Project professionals, risk professionals, Business executives and CFOs across all industries will benefit.
Why is World Risk Day important?
Launched in June of 2012, the first annual World Risk Day hosted 2,300 delegates and 25 expert speakers from a variety of industries, including energy, mining, major global infrastructure projects, and government organizations.
With huge numbers of capital projects the world over, be that building the basic infrastructure of commerce in emerging countries, through to established nations and companies upgrading ageing assets and capabilities to manage increasing demand, the subject of delivering projects on time and on budget has never been so relevant.
