Implemented a Risk Management program for Galway-based charity
This involved running a risk management workshop with managers of all services and head office.

This gave a clear indication of each risk in terms of impact and likelihood and allowed a Risk Footprint for the organisation to be produced. Work continued with the CEO and managers to put in place a mitigation plan to manage the most severe risks. The risk management system in now embedded in the organisation and gives a practical visual representation of the organisations risk profile through the Risk Footprint and the more detailed mitigating actions contained in the Risk Management plan.
