Risk Decisions Community

Community at our core

At Risk Decisions, we’ve always enjoyed bringing together like-minded people to share experiences, and lessons, and help each other find solutions to challenges. There is a huge wealth of knowledge in our risk community that we want to share amongst everyone. It means our customers and partners can build their own support systems, and go on to collaborate and strengthen their eco-systems.

What it is and isn’t

It’s about building trust and confidence so that people develop mutually beneficial relationships. It isn’t about collecting LinkedIn connections or business cards, but about developing meaningful relationships in which both parties stand to benefit.

Let everyone share and participate

During our annual community events we focus on giving people time to share their experiences and to get to know each other well. Whether they’re a newbie or a risk leader. So, the night before we usually arrange an activity. It’s an opportunity to do something interesting or fun together. Their authentic selves shine through and that’s when real, genuine connection happens. So, everyone relaxes and opens up in the seminar.

Our events always start with extended introductions. We encourage people to share a current risk challenge or a lesson they can share. For example, at our Toronto seminar in May a common thread was the importance of soft skills to risk leads. At our Munich event in April the main theme was getting senior management engagement. People found it reassuring to know that they weren’t the only one struggling with a problem; this was almost as important as finding a solution. Sharing builds stronger relationships too.
