Outride: COVID 19 Business Threat Seminar
“Embracing risk for driving vision and growth”
The series is grounded in risk intelligence (RI). RI is that process of embracing risks and putting it to work for ensuring your business can survive or thrive during a crisis and beyond. It is also about value creation and protection. About delivering your vision and mission in the face of crisis as well as during the “normal”.
You are invited to join us for series eight in the Outride: COVID 19 Business Threat Seminar.
