A major conference tackling the issues surrounding risk management will take place in October.

The Risk West Annual Conference in Plymouth on October 13 will focus on organisational success through effective management of risk.

It is being heralded as a “groundbreaking” event – rarely has a risk management conference of national standard been held in the south west.

Mark Butterworth, director of Port Isaac-based consultancy, Risk West, said: “With excellent keynote speakers and specialist roundtable sessions, this is a great opportunity for all those engaged in operational management.”

The conference will cover a wide range of risk issues including finance, auditing, business strategy, contingency planning, business insurances, health and safety and international trade.
