Broker connects risk management

A large international broker has has launched a new online hub aimed at becoming a forum for risk managers chasing industry-specific insights.

Dubbed Connect, the Aon project will host constantly updated content on emerging risk issues and methods to manage them.

Aon Risk Solutions Global and Corporate Managing Director Jason Disborough says Connect is the product of extensive research with more than 200 Australian businesspeople.

“We spent months speaking to Australian organisations about the challenges they face when it comes to sourcing information about risk,” he says.

“Connect is an industry leading initiative that will allow us to effectively deliver relevant thought-leadership content to local businesses.

“All materials on Connect will be tailored to assist business leaders in having more meaningful and informed conversations about risk.”

Disborough says Connect will not be limited to contributions from Aon staff.

“This is not an exercise in branded marketing,” he says.

“Our vision is for Connect to become an online conversation channel for subject matter experts in relation to risk – irrespective of the company they work for – and those who want to find out more information.”

The first official webinar will be held on Tuesday, 28 April, featuring Aon Crisis Management Specialist Karina Rodriguez Diaz discussing the lessons learnt from last year’s Martin Place siege.
