An introduction to Risky Business
We organise and run conferences and courses to improve safety and outcomes in healthcare and other high risk industries. We do this through sharing experiences & ideas between those who operate in risky environments such as business, emergency services, exploration, sport & healthcare. Learning how to manage risk, harness innovation, improve teamwork and leadership are vital ingredients in achieving these goals.
Risky Business events are different from anything else in the safety world. Through the sharing of ideas outside one's own sphere of expertise, we can understand risk, quality and safety from different perspectives.
