For many years, opportunity was regarded as the way to cancel out risk – the zero-sum game, that meant there was no need to fund risk mitigation – but thinking has matured to a degree since then. Pundits have stopped describing risk and opportunity as simply the flip side of the same coin.

Sadly though, little progress has been made on new, alternative thinking on how to systematically exploit opportunity. This means we’re missing a trick, ignoring a key tool that could help us achieve our goals: innovation.

This presentation takes a practical look at some of the key strategies and tactics you can employ to capture opportunities and tip the odds in your favour – leading the way to success.

Val is a highly skilled risk management expert, with extensive experience of training, facilitating and implementing project, programme, product, and business risk management systems for government and industry in the UK, EMEA, North America, and APAC regions. 

With more than 30 years’ experience working with large organisations, Val has a wealth of practical experience and vision for how they can improve business performance through risk management framework and good practice. Val played a major part in the design and development of the Risk Decisions’ Predict! Enterprise Risk Management software. She pioneered Risk Management Masterclass sessions for senior managers and Connecting Risk workshops for middle managers. 

In order to spread good/best practice risk management, Val speaks at international conferences, sits on international working groups and is an advocate of collaborative working. She is the risk subject matter expert on the ISO 258 WG8 committee, advisor to the global risk taskforce, and an IRM committee member. She is the author of the Risk Intelligence (RQ) series of white papers. 

Join Val for this thought provoking webinar where you’ll gain real world insight into capturing and taking advantage of opportunities in your projects.
