The Call for Abstracts is now closed. Thank you to those who submitted an abstract.
The Conference will be held on 17 & 18 August 2017 at Mac’s Function Centre in Wellington. The conference theme is Repositioning Risk Management.
RiskNZ is the peak sector and professional body in New Zealand for those involved in managing risk, it has the vision that New Zealand prospers because risk is well managed.
Conference 2017 presents leading edge thinking; offering insights to emergent issues and practices domestically and abroad; sharing best practice, knowledge, expertise and skills; enabling learning from shared experiences; and nurturing productive professional networks.
New Zealand organisations will face opportunities and challenges as humans across the globe adopt new technologies, change political landscapes, adopt new trading relationships, and react to war and natural hazards.
The conference provides a forum to discuss today’s thorny risk management issues and the tools and techniques that will be needed in future years: How can organisations position themselves to take advantage of opportunities whilst protecting their assets, operational base, and workforce? How can risk management provide competitive advantage?
The Conference will include papers delivered over two days. There will be two conference streams and plenary sessions with keynote speakers. The Conference Committee is seeking papers and presentations that are topical, relevant, and stimulating.
Indicatively, abstracts should detail research work, highly developed new thinking, or case studies offering clear learnings. The subject matter must be recent and highly relevant in nature. The abstract must relate to work the submitter has been personally involved in.
It is anticipated the conference will feature streams covering (but not limited to):
Conference sessions are presently planned to be 45 minutes in duration. Some opportunity exists for workshop styled sessions and for shorter presentations of approximately 20 minutes.
We encourage you to submit an abstract, this is an exciting opportunity to share knowledge and experience with peers.
