Asia-Pacific Regional Group
The IRM is the leading global professional body for Risk Management.
We drive excellence in managing risk to ensure organisations are ready for the opportunities and threats of the future. We do this by providing internationally recognised qualifications and training, publishing research, guidance and thought leadership and setting professional standards.
The IRM APAC Regional Interest Group (RIG) is a network of Risk and Business practitioners that stretches across the Asia Pacific and Oceania region, spanning across India, the countries of South East Asia, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.
We are active contributors to thought leadership in risk management in the context of the APAC region, and to the IRM globally. This includes liaising with IRM Special Interest Groups and other partner organisations across the region.
Due to our geographic span, most of our work is virtual. We arrange online thought leadership events for our members, enabling them to stay abreast of global best practices, to build strong relationships and to network and share experiences, stories and good practices.
To achieve our thought leadership activities, we carry out the following:
- Hold web meetings and webinars on topics of interest
- Publish an APAC newsletter
- Speak at APAC events (IRM and non-IRM)
- Run an IRM APAC LinkedIn Group
- Help assist with training
We are very excited about harnessing the potential of risk management now and into the future.
