TiNYg/ISRM Virtual Conference. 27-29 July 2020

Dear TINYg member

I am delighted to announce that TINYg are developing the terms of a Memorandum of Understanding with the Institute of Strategic Risk Management (ISRM): https://www.theisrm.org/

Our organisations have a great deal in common and share many members. It is with great pleasure that we celebrate this important milestone, by inviting you to join the ISRM 3-day virtual conference from 27th-29th July, with a 2-hour webinar each day (12.00-200pm BST).

 The overarching themes will be strategic and conceptual – what Covid-19 has taught us about crisis management, what we need to learn in order to be resilient against future shocks, and how organisations can get ready for both the challenges and the opportunities of the post Covid-19 new reality.

 The format will be a Chair and three / four participants per session, with twenty minutes each for presentations and then one hour for Q&A / discussion.

 As you can see, the line-up is international, and represents some significant organisations.
