Abstract for:  Demystifying Risk

Risk is not new. Dealing with uncertainty and its effects is something we all do every day from the moment we wake up until the day ends. However, we all approach risk differently and this applies not only to individuals but also to businesses.  How we think about risk will affect how well we achieve both our personal and business goals. 

In this presentation, we will unpack what is meant by risk, how it has changed, and approaches you can take to adopt risk-based thinking to better achieve objectives.  Topics will cover:

Human Perspective:            How we perceive risk

Standards Perspective:  How risk is defined

Process Perspective:     How to apply risk-based thinking
