2014 Palisade Regional Risk Conferences: Best Practices in Risk and Decision Analysis

Palisade Risk Conference Sydney Draws Diverse Delegation

Attracting over 75 delegates, the 2010 Sydney Palisade Risk Conference was held in the grand surroundings of the Radisson Plaza Hotel on October 20-21.  Attended by professionals from industries as diverse as oil and gas, mining, insurance, healthcare, construction, healthcare, banking and finance, the event was characterisedby a real enthusiasm amongst the participants to exchange information and ideas.

The conference was opened by Palisade president Sam McLafferty and Palisade Asia-Pacific Managing Director Mark Meurisse with their presentation about the history of Palisade and the importance of probabilistic risk analysis. Over the course of the two days this was followed by a further 20 presentations, including the keynote talk by Dr. Frank Ashe from the Q Group Australia and the Macquarie University Applied Finance Center, Risk Management and Organisational Culture.”  A plenary discussion of @RISK applications in finance by Andrew Kight of AON Global Risk Consulting rounded out the conference on day two.

The software training and presentations by Palisade staff on topics such as selecting the right distribution, stress testing, and cost risk analysis were very popular. There was also a lot of excitement about the possibilities of custom software development demonstrated by Palisade’s Senior Consultant Rishi Prabhakar.

Delegates also found time to relax at a networking dinner at the Radisson, as well as during two drinks receptions at the venue.

“Every presenter gave a new perspective or approach, and they were all entertaining, sometimes in subtle ways.”
