Aurelie's KeyNote

Power through risk and how to manage it  


Speaking about risk, whether in a corporation or at home, brings up the ideas of danger or restrictions. But the risk is so much more than that and there is an unknown power within. We use risk management in our daily lives without even thinking about it, this is how we manage to be stronger and to avoid mistakes (or not repeat them). Once we identify the risks in our life, know how to avoid them or to control them, the path to our goals becomes clearer.  


It's the same vision at a corporate level; developing a strong risk culture means quicker decisions can be taken with a proper understanding of the potential gaps and the solution to them. People have to be empowered at all levels so that risk can be avoided before becoming an issue. Building a risk culture in an organisation is a challenge but will ensure sustainability and flexibility for the coming years. If you want to understand how easily risk can be used as an empowering tool for yourself, your career, or your organisation, contact Aurelie to see how awareness can be raised, culture can be embraced, and which practical and simple solutions can be implemented.
