From amazing Super Recognisers to the Bank of England, ethical hackers, the Counter Terrorism Police unit, and the new Strong Customer Authentication legislation…

This year’s Retail Risk – Leicester proved utterly unmissable for all risk management professionals…

With record numbers of delegate registrations for 2018, Retail Risk – Leicester was a smash hit, but not just with Risk Management Departments.

After a slow start, owing to major road traffic incidents affecting key motorway connections to Leicester, attendance at the conference was again excellent building still further on its 12-year history.

In response to the increased need for inter-departmental awareness and collaboration in successfully dealing with risk, Risk Managers are increasingly putting Risk at the heart of their businesses by inviting key colleagues from outside of their department to join them at  Retail Risk – Leicester, as their guests! Growth in representation from IT, HR, Operations and Finance Departments was noticeable as well as some logistics.

“Everyone in Risk Management knows that fostering greater awareness in other departments about key risk management and loss prevention issues makes for better teamwork and better decision making. But it can be an uphill struggle!” commented Paul Bessant of organisers Retail Knowledge. “However, Risk Managers are increasingly taking the opportunity afforded them by the conference to reinforce the central importance of risk management to their businesses, by inviting colleagues from other departments to attend. And, after all, thanks to the generosity of our sponsors the day is free for retailers.”

And as retail businesses increasingly use the conference as a risk awareness and team building away day, the conference is evolving around their needs. This year saw for the first time several retailers being given free Skyboxes during the day in which to host private team building sessions, before heading out to enjoy lunch at the conference and taking in some of the excellent speakers, masterclasses and networking sessions.

“This evolution  of the conference to closely match the continually changing needs of retailers is central to our work. Retailers can expect some terrific innovations next year at Leicester.” Continued Bessant.

Following Retail Risk – Leicester, delegates then went on to enjoy a thrilling Fraud Awards, sponsored by WIS International. See more here…
