About Event 

This lunch time session aims to facilitate a discussion on the moving parts in today’s world that can affect risk professionals – whether its digital disruption that we see in the economy, or the need to respond to a climate emergency through COP26, there are many complex challenges that need to be addressed. In this session, we have 3 experienced recruiters from Huxley to share with us how the trends we see in today’s world can affect the talent landscape within risk. We will also cover a comparison between what professionals within risk are facing versus what hiring managers within risk are experiencing.

To top it off, they will also be sharing their advice on how risk professionals can achieve a breakthrough in their career based on their first-hand experience across start-ups and large MNCs with C-suites, Head of Departments, and risk professionals with over 10 years of experience.
