Sharing ideas on Risk, Human Performance, Teams and Leaders

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. Our speakers are chosen from a vast array of other sectors. They kindly share their stories so that we can all learn from their experiences and potentially improve safety and reduce risk in our own working environments. These talks cover diverse themes such as teamwork, leadership, survival, crisis management, investigation, reconciliation after things go wrong, team support, innovation, technology, role for artificial intelligence & system analysis.

For over a decade Risky Business events have become accepted as one of the most ground breaking and imaginative conferences focusing on risk management, patient safety and safety awareness. Our aim is to continually ‘raise the bar’ by sharing safety ideas and experience across industries in order to help our professional colleagues operate in a safer environment.

We pride ourself as being conference development experts. Through our professional collaborations and partnerships, we have expertise and experience to design interactive, inspiring and unique risk and patient safety and quality conferences world-wide.
