Martin Pergler, McKinsey & Co: The value from risk through informed trade-offs

Themes: Guest speakers, Risk

At the Centre for Risk Studies’ 4th Annual Meeting, leaders and decision makers from business, government, inter-governmental organisations, academia and NGOs explored the links between risk and strategy.

Challenging the customary perception that risk is the threat of loss with predominantly negative undertones, the annual conference encouraged broader discussion about opportunities that emerge in a risky environment.

Martin Pergler is a Senior Expert at McKinsey & Co. He believes that although everybody is certainly more aware of risk, at the same time they are feeling more exposed, to the extent that old techniques are not sufficient.
