Category description

This category was open to private and public sector individual risk and insurance managers or risk and insurance management teams and / or their collaborative colleagues from within their organisation.

The ability of organisations to absorb and recover from shocks, whilst positively adapting and transforming their structures in the face of long-term stresses, change and uncertainty was highlighted by the outbreak of COVID-19. The pandemic has arguably presented some of the biggest and most unique challenges the corporate and public risk sector has ever experienced.

It has highlighted the need for risk and insurance managers to practice and maintain a resilient, innovative and agile approach against all forms of risks in order to safeguard losses and protect staff and customers.

  • The ability to remain resilient and to solve complex problems through a creative approach to tackling a crisis
