Evidencing the value of risk management is not easy and risk managers will need to penetrate the business and tackle established processes, roles and biases. Airmic members repeatedly report engaging the business on their initiatives is one of their greatest challenges. 

Airmic was joined by International SOS and Kingfisher plc to discuss the practical actions that can overcome this challenge and ensure resource and attention is allocated to appropriate risk management strategies. We will consider: 

-    Understanding your audience: How can risk managers establish the individual goals of their Board members and tailor their message accordingly?
-    Placing a value on risk mitigation and preparedness: How can risk managers use storytelling to put risks into context?
