December webinar

  • 17 Dec 2020

The NSW Chapter team held their Christmas Webinar on Tuesday 15 December 2020. 

Marcus Turner, Director Governance & Risk at Gifted Risk Solutions, presented on the 2019/20 Bushfire Season, which was the worst in Australia’s history. He outlined how communities responded and how that response is now more difficult.

Themelina Johns, Risk & Resilience Advisor at Lion, presented on the experience and learnings of a disruptive year in a global organisation, with multi-faceted impacts and a few wins to boot, with the irony of 2020 being the year that no-one saw coming.

The next Chapter Meeting will be held via webinar on Wednesday 10 February 2021 4-6pm, with Chris Miller and Aleksander Koracevic presenting. 

Please put the date in your diary now! More details to follow.
