Human Beings and Risk

Thursday 11 March 2021
8:00am - 9:00am
NZTA, Wellington

Registrations are closed.

Join us for the first Wellington Morning Network Group of 2021.

Our speaker is Hans Kopruch – Managing Director of Niche Market Limited.

When the risk is not a risk anymore, but reality, and the unknown unknown has hit us, all risk management practices, disaster recovery plans and business continuity plans seem to be not worth the paper they were written on.

Millions of dollars spent in preparation make way for improvisation as disaster strikes. The missing bit is always that Human Factors are ignored when it comes to planning, risk assessment and management and response.

Hans will share one key factor why planning and response has to change, taking human nature into account.


Niche Market Ltd has been in operation for 27 years, working with medium-sized, privately held businesses in NZ. Hans (an author of 15 books) and Michaela focus on structure, systems and human factors, partnering with Vann Joines in the USA. They focus on Personality Adaptations and using Redecision Therapy in a business context.
