Still in Control



Managing business risk has never been more important in today’s environment.

Does this sound familiar?

But at what cost?

In tough times it can be a natural knee-jerk reaction to cut costs and that can be a positive if risk is managed effectively but a disaster if not. Standing still and avoiding risk is not an option! This highly topical conference is aimed at decision makers or influencers who have an organisational responsibility to sustain profitability and drive efficiency whilst maintaining an operational environment that is both safe and stable.

Guest speakers include:

Gary Aitken, Head of HSE, Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service
Bob Keiller, Chairman of Scottish Enterprise
John Smith, Chief Executive Officer, MPC Group Australia
Colin Maclachlan, Star of Channel 4's reality TV drama SAS: Who Dares Wins, and Risk Management Consultant
Alan Smith, Director, Matrix Risk Control

Believe us, attending this conference is not a risk - take one day out of your busy schedule and join us.

An excellent panel of speakers will help you to reassess your stance regarding risk in the workplace.
