March PDM Topic: Application of Risk Assessment Strategies

Back by popular demand, David Morrow spoke at our September PDM about assessing the risks companies face, quantifying the potential chance and severity of the risks, as well as the costs associated with a risk event and risk avoidance. Member feedback from that meeting was, "These are great concepts! How do we actually implement them in real life?" Dave will continue his conversations with us on various topics during his second visit.  You won't want to miss it!
