As the incidence of kidnap & ransom, terrorism, active shooters, natural disasters and associated travel risk grows on the one hand, so too does the legal obligation on employers to demonstrate their duty of care towards domestic and overseas employees.

Against this background of increased liability, security directors and managers, risk managers and travel risk managers, human resources professionals and insurance specialists need the latest information on the threats to their employees and their organisations.

Taking place in central London on 15th May, 2018, Managing Travel Risk & People Risk is a one-day conference focused on the key issues of the day. Bringing together an international audience from across the UK, Europe and further afield, this cutting-edge event will enable delegates to learn about the latest strategies for dealing with travel risks, while offering the perfect opportunity to exchange ideas and network with peers.
