10:25 - 10:55

Personal Risk 1 - Recognising Bias in TRM?

Sam Roper will lead a panel that looks at how TRM programmes have traditionally been set up and how to assess if they adequately cover an individual’s personal risk profile.  With an increasingly diverse workforce travelling to an ever-increasing number of destinations, are personal risk factors included so that they can be assessed and mitigated? Is the TRM programme more focussed on home culture than destination risk?


David Jovic, Vodafone

Jase Keen, Citrix

10:55 - 11:55

Personal Risk 2 - Implementing a Programme

Jeremy Wilkes will discuss with his panellists how they used diverse risk profiles to create programmes that address the different risks that their travellers may face, with a particular focus on women, LGBT+ and BAME travellers.


Elizabeth Lewis, Deutsche Bank

Anne Hudson. Northumbria University

Emma Lamb, Facebook

12:00 - 13:00


13:00 - 13:50

Medical Risk

Dr Nic Hillier's panel will consider how medical factors affect travellers and what an organisation needs to address, including how pre-existing and ‘home’ diseases may be more likely to cause travel issues than their more exotic counterparts. 


Dr Anthony Renshaw, International SOS

Ady Firth, Pearson

13:50 - 14:40

Modern Risks and Technology

Dr Sophie Harwood will investigate the changing risk landscape incorporating how technology affects the way we communicate and travel and the associated risks.  Technology has changed habits with social media, the sharing economy, and the rise of bleisure travel, meaning that TRMs often need to address their use.  This panel will also consider if technology can streamline the TRM process.


Grant Cambridge, EY

David Herd, Unilever

Nathan Monshin, SI Risk

14:45 - 15:35

Mark Frary will look back at the sessions from the day and share his findings and some of the key actions the panels shared.
