Risk Management Interview: Nowell Seaman at RIMS Canada

Posted by Craig Rowe on Mon, Sep 19, 2011 @ 15:09 PM

This is the first installment of the Risk Management Interview series on the ClearRisk blog. Over my business trips, I’ve had the opportunity to meet many risk management thought leaders. I decided it would be a great idea to gather the opinions of various risk management and insurance professionals to share on our risk management blog, and so began this series.

From September 18 to the 21, I am attending the RIMS Canada Conference in Ottawa. This conference gathers risk management and insurance professionals together to learn more about what’s going on in the industry and to share ideas and strategies.

In this short video, I interview Nowell Seaman at the RIMS Canada Conference 2011 in Ottawa. Nowell is the risk manager of the University of Saskatchewan, and he is on the board of directors for RIMS.

I asked Nowell what was on his mind in terms of risk management this week. Here’s what Nowell had to say:

The world is continuing to produce its share of unprecedented risks, whether they’re financial markets or commodities or the weather, and the interest in risk and how to manage risk successfully needs to grow at a faster pace.

What risks are on your mind this week? Is there something new that you’ve learned during the conference?
