EURisk Convention gives Biz Week international appeal
Delegates from 19 countries are coming to Hull event
Business leaders, senior professionals and academics from around the world are coming to Hull next week for the inaugural EURisk Convention, one of Humber Business Week’s showpiece events.
Delegates from countries including Ghana, Mexico, Argentina, Israel, Venezuela, Switzerland and the USA will be attending the convention, which takes place at the University of Hull from 4-8 June, to learn more about risk management techniques and how to apply them to real-life business scenarios.
Dr Elvis Hernandez-Perdomo, Director of Hessle company OSL Risk Management, is one of the main organisers of the event. He said: “It’s great that we’ve been able to attract people to the event from around the world – not just the UK and Humber region. We’re very proud to be bringing this event to Humber Business Week, giving local business professionals an opportunity to make global connections.”
The convention has attracted several high-profile speakers including respected risk management tutor Dr Johnathan Mun, and Dr Paolo Sironi, an expert in utilising artificial intelligence and digitisation to manage risks. Both experts will give keynote seminars at the convention on Thursday 7 June, which also features a business lunch.
Dr Hernandez-Perdomo explained that the sessions were a valuable opportunity for businesses of all sizes. He said: “The seminars will allow business leaders, SMEs and entrepreneurs to gain a greater understanding of risk management and how it can apply to their business, while equipping them with the skills to produce a more informed decision-making process.
“We’ve worked with all kinds of businesses, from small cleaning companies to charities, construction firms and manufacturers. All these organisations have seen the benefits of improving their risk management strategy.
“We urge all business leaders and professionals around Hull and the wider area to come along to our event and discover how we can help their companies to run better, and more profitably.”
