After completing a PhD in Biology in Canada, Deb returned to NZ and found her niche as a risk management consultant in small consultancies, before joining to URS (now AECOM) to lead and grow their national Risk Management team. From leading a team engaged in strategic, organisational, operational and technical risk management, she then took on the role of risk owner as General Manager Strategic Support at Transit, and then as Regional Director for New Zealand Transport Agency. Most recently, she led the passenger rail business for KiwiRail for 5 years as General Manager of Passenger. She will talk about her journey from risk management consultant to clients in the early years of the new risk standard; to being the risk owner of a national operation in a relatively high risk sector, where she led 500 primarily operational staff and carried over 12 million customers annually.
