Opportunity Emerging from Volatility

Exploring the Tops Risks of 2023 

For business leaders and those who advise them, the issues to consider and build strategies around are as diverse as ever.  Discussions around whether Russia might deploy nuclear weapons is now as common in boardrooms as it is in NATO planning sessions. Predictions voiced a decade ago about the effects of a changing climate have arrived harder and faster than anticipated.   Further compounding the challenge for many businesses is a prediction of a recession in 2023 not only within Canada but across many major economies. 

The world looks different depending on your vantage point and amongst the many challenges also lies opportunities for many Canadian businesses.   It is for this reason that QBE is proud to work in partnership with global risk and strategic consulting firm Control Risks to host this very special virtual event.  Regularly working with C-Suites and Board of Directors for Fortune 100 companies, Control Risks specializes in identifying, preparing for and monitoring the top macro risks which should form an integral part of an organizations’ strategic planning and decision-making processes.

During this 60 minute session, Control Risks’ experts will present the top geopolitical, operational, political, reputational and security risks for businesses for the year ahead, taking what you understand from headline news and putting it through a through a lens which makes clear the implications and opportunities for businesses operating in Canada. 

Attendees of this event will benefit from:

  • An impartial and external perspective on key issues, such as the complex and evolving US-China relationship as well as the ongoing Ukraine-Russia conflict,
  • Relevant analysis and intelligence designed to directly inform strategic decision-making,
  • Input ideas for risk registers, crisis management planning, scenario-forecasting and country risk assessments.

Resilience, insight and courage will be the watchwords for business in the year ahead.  We invite you to join us as we see the world through the lens of Control Risks’ experts and walk away with strategies that will bolster a business’ resilience and shape their risk management thinking for the year ahead.
