Presentation Abstract/Overview::

Risk is not new. Dealing with uncertainty and its effects is something we all do every day from the moment we wake up until the day ends. However, we all approach risk differently and this applies not only to individuals but also to businesses.  How we think about risk will affect how well we achieve both our personal and business goals.

In this presentation, we will unpack what is meant by risk, how it has changed, and approaches you can take to adopt risk-based thinking to better achieve objectives.  Topics will cover:

  • Common approaches to addressing risk
  • What do the standards (ISO, FDA, OSHA, DOT, NEB, etc.) say?
  • What is risk-based thinking and how does it differ from risk management?
  • How to embed risk-based thinking into your business process



6:30pm - 7:00pm: Registration, Member networking and refreshment.

7:00pm - 8:30pm: Presentation

Looking forward to meeting you all at our event.
