Attending risk management events is an effective approach to staying current on developments in risk management. Going to an event allows you to exchange ideas with your peers, hear different opinions, get out of the office, and have fun for a few days.
Conferences, chapter meetings, or other types of risk management events allow participants to take a step back from daily routines and think about the wider issues. Events may be used as an educational forum as well as a place to expand your professional network, make new friends and build relationships with those you already know. Sometimes, the most informative part of a conference comes out of informal interactions with other participants.
In addition to increasing your network, you may actually learn something! Most conferences offer an opportunity to hear some amazing speakers. I’ve personally attended several risk management events and have gained tremendously from the experience.
The next few months present several opportunities to attend risk-management events. Below are some key upcoming events:

Professional Risk Management International Association (PRMIA) Risk Culture & Remuneration: an Expert Panel 11 February, 2013 (London)
When the FSA first suggested it might try to regulate culture a few years ago, there was some disbelief as to whether that was their remit and how that might be done. We`ve certainly heard a lot about cultural problems in banks and investment firms in the aftermath of the crisis. But how do you `fix` cultures you don`t like and incentivize more appropriate behaviours which benefit all stakeholders for the longer term? Ring-fencing? Remuneration? Regulating the business model? Is it all about the tone at the top, or are there just pockets of activities where the industry should be focusing? Our expert panel will try and tackle some of these issues and respond to your questions.
