“I wanted to join a professional institute that allowed me to capture the broad topic of risk and apply those risk techniques into each discipline, to help me with my own professional development. IIRSM is a good fit for me as an individual. I’m a fan of what the Institute offers” Stephen Smith is Executive Director, SHEQ Europe, Middle East & Canada at Multiplex

"For me, being a Fellow of IIRSM is about three things - respect, recognition and responsibility. I demonstrate and receive respect from my peers. I am recognised for my professionalism and expertise and I have a responsibility to give back. I am proud of my achievement and enjoy my relationship with IIRSM and its members." Karla Gahan, Senior Consultant, Risk Advisory & Analytics, Barnett Waddingham
