Awards deadline extended to February 8 with eight risk management awards up for grabs, so get in quick before entries close.
Entry to StrategicRISK’s fourth annual Asia-Pacific Risk Management Awards is now open.
Risk practitioners can enter five award categories (see below), with the winners announced at a special gala cocktail reception at StrategicRISK’s annual conference held in Singapore in May 2019.
There are also three specialist categories for individuals or companies that serve the risk community including Insurance Innovation of the Year and Broking Innovation of the Year.
StrategicRISK Asia-Pacific publisher William Sanders said, ”StrategicRISK has been celebrating innovation and excellence in risk management since 2003 and more than 100 organisations and individuals across Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Middle East have been recognised for their important contributions to the risk management industry. The Asia-Pacific Awards are an important way to recognise and reward organisations and individuals who can demonstrate they have gone the extra mile in 2019 to introduce or improve their risk management strategies in the region.”
The Awards are independently judged by a panel of hand-picked risk experts with a new two-step judging process introduced in 2019. All entries will be scored by a panel of sixteen judges to create the finalist shortlist. In the second round of judging, finalists will be interviewed by a separate panel risk management experts.
The deadline for entering the Awards is 8 February 2019. Shortlisted finalists will be announced in March 2019.
