Risk culture is a collective approach to managing risk and making decisions. It’s a system of beliefs, values and behaviours throughout your organisation.

A positive risk culture is where everyone in an organisation accepts that thinking about and managing risk is part of their job.

For risk management to be effective, culture must be a focus. So where do you start? How do you make sense of something so intangible, so unclear?

Our risk culture workshop uses techniques drawn from the world of design thinking. You will learn practical techniques to get a better grip on complexity and empathy.
