Again this year, the IOR is supporting the Risk Management Awards. As a result of our involvement, there are specific Operational Risk categories, such as Operational Risk Initiative of the Year, and other categories of relevance such as Risk Management Product of the Years, Risk Management Specialist Firm of the Year.
As well as thinking about something your firm has been involved in, those working in consultancy may like to encourage a client to enter some OR activity they know the client is engaged in. Those working client-side may wish to get a software or consultant firm to enter a product they have been impressed by! In all cases, a team gets a real lift out of knowing their work has been regarded well enough to be put forward for a prize.
Preparing the entry is not at all onerous and there is still plenty of time before the deadline of 14 July. Details of the categories and how to enter are on
The Awards Dinner is on 9 November and the host is Lucy Porter – http://www.cirmagazine.com/riskmanagementawards/host.php.
