The second GRC Supper Club took place at The Sawn restaurante next to the Globe Theatre in central London. The view for our second event may not have been as panoramic as that from the Shard, but it was amazing and the Swan Restaurant private room was more conducive to group discussions. As you are all aware, the idea of the supper club is to bring together peers for networking and with that in mind it was wonderful to see, yet again, shared interests bloom, intersect and build across tables.
The event followed the same format as the last, with special guest speakers in between courses. Which enables great peer group discussions, we had 2 speakers arranged; a retired Sergeant Major [Medical Corps - deeply experienced in Risk Management, Crisis Management, Security, Leadership] and 2MC [skilled risk solution consultants - to discuss best practises and the keys to a successful implementation e.g. mitigation of engagement risk].
Some snippets from the evening include:
John Thirlwell¹s speech on the meaning of Op Risk was fantastic, although, he never managed to get rid of the Chinese version of his ORM book. He did, however, manage to sell a signed copy to Ron Miles (which Ron bought with my money lol).
