Our 2019 Annual Conference is set to be the biggest to date and an ideal opportunity for operational risk, compliance and audit professionals to gather under one roof and share experiences, ideas and gain valuable risk insight.

A huge challenge for all Risk professionals is how to create a Positive Risk experience across the organisation. How can you create the recipe for success in generating proactive employee engagement in the risk process?

This year's venue is the magnificent Royal Institution, often considered the birthplace of modern science, and home to the Christmas Lectures. It provides a unique and intimate environment to share and discuss the challenges within operational risk as well as emerging areas such as Operational Resilience, SM&CR and Digital Risk.
