Even if your organization has a risk management plan, chances are it does not adequately cover your meetings. And for vendors, your plans may not adequately include your clients and their events. Creating a risk management plan for each and every meeting is a daunting task. What if you could identify five things that you could do right away to better protect people, places and things? You can! Through interaction and collaboration, we’ll explore and devise methods that, if implemented, will improve your risk management practices starting with your very next meeting.

By participating in this program, you will:
  • Identify areas that can create risk for meeting sponsor, venue, and vendors.
  • Learn to Modify the meeting planning process to incorporate risk management measures into every step.
  • Define and document the risk management allocation between planners, facilities and vendors for each meeting or event.
We will address practical risk management issues that you can apply to your meetings now to help you avert crises that can result when risk management is not part of your planning. As part of the discussion, we will look at issues that can cause crises and how to best prepare to avoid them to protect people and property.
