IIRSM Futureproof Programme

In a world full of risks and opportunities, how do you know which ones deserve your time and resources? If you don't understand yourself and your own attitudes to risk, how can you be sure that you are making the right decisions when it comes to managing these risks and opportunities.

Becoming futureproof is about taking the time to understand the challenges you face today and in the future and ensuring you have the strategies, plans and people in place to manage known risks, so that you are sufficiently agile to respond to unknown risks and capable of capitalising on opportunities.

IIRSM's Futureproof Programme looks at crisis and disruption, scenario planning, before exploring organisational and personal resilience strategies and learning lessons from the best and worst leadership techniques.

Using a modern approach to classroom training, this fast-paced programme will provide you and your organisation with ways to ensure your organisation is resilient enough to withstand challenges and maximise opportunities through understanding effective leadership strategies for survival.   

Pilot course: 25 April, London (FULL)

Trainer: John Huckstepp, MSc, SFIIRSM, CFCIPD, Tech.IOSH
