Our two guest quantitative risk management expert speakers Thomas Pechlaner and Geir Robinson will reflect on their practical experience in quantitative risk and how it can be utilized in various areas of operations. They will focus on how to calculate risk following a structured approach and methodology and how to communicate risk to the board room using quantitative methods and techniques that provide a view of risk rather than the normal quantitative risk assessment methods.
