Airmic 2017 opened yesterday and with the risk management industry in Birmingham for the three day conference, key themes surrounding unknown risks future of risk have emerged for the year ahead. 

This message was reiterated by Nik Gowling (Professor and Co-author of "Thinking the Unthinkable: Imperatives for Leaders in the Digital Age") who's presentatiton focused on the unpredictable political events across the world over the past year.

The potential of new technologies is also apparent, the full use of which we have yet to discover, which adds to the unknowns mentioned above. However, with innovation at the forefront of the industry I look forward to seeing the ways in which new systems and tools will emerge and transform the art of risk management.
