The inaugural RiskNZ practitioners’ development day is rapidly taking shape, with arrangements confirmed for concurrent seminars to be delivered in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland, linked via the internet so that 3 keynote addresses are shared by all in real-time. The overarching theme for the day is ‘The National Risk Profile’, and each of the three venues has its own specific focus. The intention is that the October 13 seminars set the scene and lead in to Conference 2016.
· Wellington (Wharewaka Function Centre) – Whole of Government Approaches to Risk Management
· Christchurch (Christchurch City Council Civic Centre) – Applied Learnings from Major Risk Events
· Auckland (Beca Auditorium) – The External Face of Risk Management
We have been successful in already securing the support of several notable speakers including the Assistant Auditor General, Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel and the project leader for the Government’s soon to be rolled out PSR (Protective Security Requirements) Strategy.
The fee for the development day is $400 plus GST for members and $450 plus GST for non-members
