Event Risk Management Consulting

Creating the Corporate Meeting and Event Risk Management Strategy

In today’s world of uncertainty, companies have risk management and legal teams who manage corporate risk, however most corporate crisis management plans fail to address threats to corporate meetings and events. This leaves attendees’ safety at risk and the company organizers and planners at risk for legal liability, financial loss and damage to their brand.

Combining her legal background and years of experience helping clients through unforeseen crises, Rivers has developed a consulting practice that leads corporate event management teams to design and develop their organization’s customized, standard operating procedures for meeting and event risk management.
