Sign up for our Risk Training Seminar

The Welsh Sports Association’s (WSA) in-person risk training seminar, entitled ‘Risk as a Facet of Strategy and Control?’ and being put on exclusively for members, is approaching, with the event set to take place on the 24th of May!

It will contain crucial information for your organisation’s resilience and is set to be led by industry expert Mark Wearden, who boasts extensive experience in delivering consultancy projects to a wide variety of clients.

The last two years of pandemic have highlighted many uncertainties for all of us, as individuals, and as organisations. As we re-engineer and re-generate the momentum required for continuity and viability, this is an optimal time to reassess our understanding of the difference between ‘risk’ and ‘uncertainty’. In this workshop we will consider practical dimensions to help in our strategic planning, risk mitigation, and control of irrationality and failure.

The workshop will take place as follows:


Risk Perspective – 1
RECOGNITION: Risk is an intrinsic part of strategy, requiring management & control

Risk Perspective – 2
PARAMETERS: Risk appetite, risk capacity, and risk tolerance

Risk Perspective – 3
MATERIALITY: Measurement, probability, continuity, assessment, and metrics

13:00 to 13:30 LUNCH

Risk Perspective – 4
OWNERSHIP: Holistic accountability from conception of risk to disaster recovery

Risk Perspective – 5
MITIGATION: Finding the appropriate internal and external controls

Risk Perspective – 6
CHALLENGE: ‘True and fair’ – the need for scepticism


The event will be held in person at the Cardiff City Stadium, with doors opening at 9am, ready for a 10am start on the 24th of May.

There will be a maximum of 30 spaces available for the seminar, with places already being snapped up by members, so don’t hesitate in getting your tickets booked!

The cost will be subsidised through the Governance and Leadership Framework for Wales, meaning tickets will cost just £50.
