Risk Event Lessons for Business

120 people across all industry sectors engaged in a wide range of risk topics delivered by industry leading speakers at the Still In Control event sponsored by Samphire Subsea. The topics covered the complete risk spectrum from commodity, military, criminal, travel and corporate risk. We loved the concept behind Still in Control and how it fitted with all the key themes for business today.

At Samphire Subsea, we understand the uncertainty around the current low oil price environment which is driving the need for collaboration, diversification and international expansion. The current global instability is also adding further complexity and security risk to all business, in already challenging times. As output, there was real insight for all business from the day with thoughts and actions to take away to help provide structure for challenging times. These can be integrated into your business to help manage the risks and pave the way for a more managed future in this changing environment. There were many facets of the day that resonated with Samphire Subsea as a business, to pick up on a couple of topics:

  • Criminal risk dealt with the case of the Arlene Fraser murder and how her husband was convicted eventually due to a lack of attention to the small details. At Samphire Subsea our DNA is based around taking care of the small details to allow our customers to focus on the key big decisions.
  • Corporate risk dealt with company culture and how that can make a difference in a competitive market. Our culture is what defines Samphire Subsea as a business; it is at the core of how we go about our work, take care of our people and work with our customers.
  • Travel risk reflected on the need for real diligence and planning for engagement in higher risk areas. At Samphire Subsea this is very relevant as we look to travel to West Africa this month for the first time. We are working to adapt our standard travel process and add extra steps to provide assurance and security for the trip.

There was plenty of food for thought in general but at Samphire Subsea we are already looking at how we can improve our existing systems and processes as a result of the conference. We would be happy to share and discuss any of the topics from the day, so please get in contact should you wish to hear more on any specific topic.
