About this Speaker
David sees risk analysis as a decision-support tool, nothing more or less. He advocates risk management be seen as making good decisions that are supported by good risk analysis, not producing quarterly risk management reports.
David is an outspoken critic of qualitative methods in risk management. His often-humorous LinkedIn and blog articles use compelling arguments (and more than a little cynicism) to cajole risk managers away from their heat maps. If his workshop is as funny as his articles, it should be a great session.
David’s company has developed highly regarded risk analysis and risk management software tools including ModelRisk, Tamara and Pelican.
