The World is Safe and Getting Safer

22 October 2008 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Chatham House, London


Richard Fenning, CEO, Control Risks



Today we live in a truly globalised world, where business takes place in increasingly far-flung places. Whilst the business fundamentals in many emerging markets can be extremely positive, for many organisations the perception remains that doing business in these regions is not worthwhile as it is too risky, too uncertain, or simply too dangerous.

Richard Fenning, CEO of Control Risks will challenge these assumptions, arguing that with the right risk mitigation measures in place, business is possible, and moreover profitable in these countries. He will talk about the difficulty of distinguishing risk from fear, and outline the current challenges and key risks affecting global business operations in Russia, China, the Middle East and beyond.
