28th February 2023
Healix last week hosted an exclusive panel event specifically for senior security and risk leaders “One year on – How has the Ukraine invasion changed the approach to risk management?”

Moderated by Russell Smith, Healix’s Director of Government Services, the event brought together a panel of esteemed speakers to discuss:

  • The current and forecasted situation in Ukraine
  • Wider economic implications for business operations and the global economy
  • Impacts on the approach to risk management and lessons learned so far
  • How to operate through volatility: the new priorities
