Risk Leadership Promo V3

Transforming how the risk community shares knowledge and expertise

Risk Leadership Network is a global corporate membership network for risk leaders and their teams. We enable peer collaboration to help Members enhance risk management effectiveness and improve corporate performance and resilience.

The Idea


I’ve had the privilege of working with senior risk professionals and industry thought leaders from around the world for more than twenty years. During this time, I've seen first-hand the benefits of peer group networking and collaboration among risk professionals.

As many risk managers have told me, risk management isn’t something you can learn solely from a textbook. Good risk management is about how you practically apply concepts within an organisation and the best way to learn this is from the experiences of others.


Despite the benefits of networking, I observed that risk managers spend relatively little time engaging with their peers, particularly in a meaningful way. Why? For many professionals there simply isn’t enough time. For others, existing networking opportunities are often unstructured, too broad or sales-led.

Inspired by this and working with a group of pioneering risk managers, we have created the Risk Leadership Network. We’d be delighted to discuss the benefits of membership with you.
