Managing Business in an Evolving Risk Landscape


Chris Torrens, Partner, Control Risks


An Outlook into 2023: Managing Business in an Evolving Risk Landscape

After a tumultuous 2022, 2023 will feature a historically broad and deep set of risks for businesses. Fragmentation of the global system will intensify, propelled by a combination of fractious geopolitics, armed conflict, disrupted energy systems, economic strife and disarray in digital networks. We see new regulatory trends emerging, new operational threats manifesting and risk registers needing to be revisited to respond to this reality. Resilience, insights, and courage will be the watchwords for business in the year ahead.

During this webinar, Chris Torrens, Partner at Control Risks, will share observations of the top global risk trends for 2023 and the critical areas of focus in future-proofing your global and local business.
