On Tuesday 12th December, Dr Madhu Acharrya and MSc Risk Management and MSc International Banking Finance and Risk Management students were invited to attend an industry seminar titled ‘Supply Chain Risk – Identification, Measurement and Measurement’ at The Millennium Hotel in Mayfair, London.
The conference was organised by Commercial Risk Europe and aimed to focus on improving Supply Chain Risk Management within corporate companies. This event was attended by a number of Risk Management professionals with speakers including Jonathan Blackhurst (Director of Risk Management at Capita), Joe Trotti (Head of Property & Speciality Risk at AIG) and John Davies (Head of Analytics, Managing Director at Marsh).
On the event, Sheree Holland (MSc International Banking Finance and Risk Management) comments:
“The discussions today highlighted that there is an evolving landscape supporting supply chain, which is currently experiencing sensational changes; creating new complexities and risks. One is the added complexity of cyber-risks being faced by many companies, regardless of their position within the supply chain.”
Ali Hassan (MSc International Banking Finance and Risk Management) adds:
“The event was an insightful event to unify academic literature and theories along with the practical views of industry professionals. It was also an interesting opportunity to learn how to manage, mitigate and model risks and the choice of selecting appropriate data to model such risks from large pools of data which elevates a better understanding of the Banking Operational Risk and Global Operations Management module studied at GCU London.”
