Ian Holder, Managing Director of Baines Simmons, said: “At Baines Simmons we have been looking for a partner organisation who believe that effective risk management is not just about risk assessments, matrices and registers, but an entity wide endeavour involving leadership, culture and competence enabling a performance based management system.

“In IIRSM we have found a like-minded partner and look forward to meeting with other Partners and Members to continue to push practical risk management forwards to the benefit of both the public and organisational effectiveness.”
