Cyprus Safety Platform Risk Communication Day - Friday July 5th at 17:00 in Auditorium Delta, European University Cyprus

with Dr Jan Gutteling, Director of iCRISP, University of Twente (http://www.utwente.nl/gw/pcrv/en/emp/gutteling.doc/)

and Dr Alan Waring, Author of Corporate Risk and Management (http://www.gowerpublishing.com/isbn/9781409448365)

More Details about Jan Gutteling:

Currently I am an Associate Professor of Crisis and Risk Communication at Twente University, in Enschede, the Netherlands. My research focuses on the understanding of risk perception and the application of this understanding in crisis and risk communication. Studies are aimed at (1) developing (social psychological) models of risk-related behaviour, or at (2) establishing how and under which circumstances risk communication influences risk-related behaviour. Recent themes are water safety management (flood risks), fire hazard management, crowd management, and technology-delivered first emergency warnings (cell broadcast).
More details about Alan Waring:
Dr Alan Waring has 35 years’ experience in risk management. His several books include Managing Risk (1998), co-authored with Prof Ian Glendon, Practical Systems Thinking (1996) and Corporate Risk and Governance due out in May 2013. He has presented over 20 conference and seminar papers on risk issues at major events in the UK, China, Iran, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Cyprus and USA. He has written numerous articles published in e.g. Strategic Risk, Catastrophe Risk Management, Corporate Governance Asia, Risk Management – an International Journal and Cyprus Financial Mirror.
          As a full time risk management consultant since 1986, he has undertaken client assignments for over 80 organizations in 15 countries across many industry sectors. Typically working with boards, board risk committees, individual directors and senior executives, his assignments have included governance-related corporate risk reviews for large organizations as well as a wide range of strategic and operational risk issues.
          In the 1990s, he was extensively engaged in major hazard ‘safety case’ development for companies in the offshore oil & gas and the railway industries. He has conducted assignments and written reports submitted to the King’s Cross Fire Inquiry (1988) and the Sea Empress Inquiry (1997) as well as implementation assignments for numerous clients following the King’s Cross Fire Inquiry and the Piper Alpha Inquiry. He has also participated in independent studies of the Barings Bank collapse, the NHS reforms and Iran in transition to an economy-without-oil.
          From 2007-2009, he was Adjunct Professor, Centre for Corporate Governance & Financial Policy, School of Business, Hong Kong Baptist University.
