Sharing ideas on Risk, Human Performance, Teams and Leaders

London 2019

Crisis Management, Leadership, Innovation and Well Being

Due to the high interest in this event - we have sold out in previous years - please book early to avoid disappointment.

The annual Risky Business London conference will return for its 12th year in 2019 and will run over three days. The aim of Risky Business is to improve outcomes and safety in healthcare and other industries.

5th June Risky Business
Learning across healthcare

The packed programme will feature short sharp focused talks from senior frontline clinicians and executives from many of the leading children’s hospitals around the world. They will share experiences of their latest patient safety, improvement and innovation initiatives in their organisations.

6th & 7th June Risky Business
Learning from other industries

The conference will focus on cross industry learning through sharing experiences and ideas between those who operate in risky environments such as business, emergency services, exploration, sport and healthcare.

Learning from paediatric centres of excellence

The paediatric day will focus on short sharp presentations from senior frontline clinicians and executives from many of the leading children’s hospitals around the world. They will share their experiences of their latest patient safety, improvement and innovation initiatives in their organisations. Topics will range from managing a hospital during a major city draught, the role of live video recordings in the operating room and ICU, knowing when to break medical SOPs, solving deadlock between healthcare professionals and their patients and predicting which aircraft and patients are going to crash using latest technologies.

During day 2 of the conference you will you will hear from those intimately involved with the following crises around the world:

  • The Grenfell Fire
  • The Manchester Arena Bombing
  • The London Bridge terror attack
  • The Salisbury Novichok incident
  • Thai Cave footballers rescue

The well being and legal issues surrounding those involved in such serious incidents will be discussed and lead to personal reflections by the father of anaesthetist, Julien Warshafsky, who tragically took his own life. The importance of effective leadership will be highlighted by an array of outstanding speakers from the top of medicine, aviation, sport and politics.

During day 3 of the conference you will hear how systems failures are responsible for ineffective outcomes in all industries.

We will hear stories from those who were intimately involved in such failures:

  • Costa Concordia
  • Rugby’s ‘Bloodgate’
  • Changing a hospital’s culture and willful blindness
  • We will also hear from some inspirational speakers on topics such as:
  • The latest advances in CPR using Smartphones
  • Disruptive technologies
  • Teamwork at the limits

The day concludes with a talk by Billy ‘the whizz’ Monger who as a Formula 4 racing driver aged 17 lost his legs in an accident but is now on course to drive Formula 1 racing cars.
