Active Risk Proud to be Lead Sponsor for the IRM Risk Leaders’ Event

London, United Kingdom, August 04, 2011 --( Active Risk (formerly Strategic Thought Group) is proud to announce its lead sponsorship of the Institute of Risk Management’s (IRM) 2nd annual Risk Leaders’ Conference in the UK. The event in London on November 16th will this year focus on practical strategies for risk at board level.

Peter Robertshaw, SVP Global Marketing at Active Risk said, “As a company focused on enabling organizations to take an enterprise view of risk, the topic for this year’s Risk Leader’s Conference is of particular relevance to Active Risk. The risk management discipline continues to evolve and mature. Boards expect more from risk practitioners and risk management systems but there needs to be renewed debate on how risk managers and senior management can communicate more effectively.”

At the conference, Active Risk will present the results of its global survey on what makes a great risk manager. This research is identifying the personality traits exhibited by risk managers in different industries around the world. The results will be used to provide advice on how risk professionals can more successfully speak the language understood by the CEO, CFO and CIO and how management teams can better communicate their needs and strategies to the risk function.

In the IRM’s 25th anniversary year, Active Risk continues to deepen its support for the institute’s events programme. In addition to the Risk Leader’s Conference, Active Risk is also sponsoring the IRM Risk Awards for the second year running.
