Risk management needs a rethink
Traditionally risk management meant risk avoidance, elimination or minimisation. Today it means risk acquisition. Risk taking is key to learning and innovation.
However, there is a strong correlation between risk taking and failure. Thus it is not in the DNA of industrial age organisations to take risks, which in turn limits their capacity to innovate.
Sample subthemes to explore include:
- Risk taking in respect of developing new business models.
- Developing a culture that is comfortable taking more risks.
- Redefining governance in the context of needing to take more risks as an organisation.

What they are saying…
We wanted someone who would engage our leadership differently. Ade did this brilliantly. Engaging, fast paced and multifaceted. Just what was needed to shake things up a little in the last session of our conference!
We recently held a conference in Milan around “Digital” for our senior partners throughout the MED region (Italy, Spain and Portugal) and Ade joined us by VC as a keynote speaker. Even by VC Ade kept the audience captive with lots of note taking and it also provoked a lot of discussion after the event. One of the most compelling keynote speakers that we have had in the MED region.
Ade understands business and IT opportunities through the lens of executives and how to present this back in a concise manner with clear takeaways.
Ade spoke at an event for around 250 of our UK & Israel Technology team. Ade has a fantastic presentation style, and it was clear in the prep calls that he was able to take our overall theme of the event and link that to his presentation. I would highly recommend Ade as a motivational speaker and thought leader.
Ade McCormack sounds a much-needed clarion call for IT to “grow up” and become a mature business function.
