This book differs from most other risk management books - it isn’t aimed at risk specialists, it doesn’t focus on a single, specific area, such as financial or insurance-related risk and it’s not nearly as dull!

This book is a highly practical ‘how to’ guide that gives a simple, straightforward, yet thorough process which, if followed, will make your business more resilient.
