August 4, 2014

Risk managers and risk-compliant organisations will be rewarded for dedication and commitment to the risk business at the second Nigerian Risk award expected to hold in Lagos on November 5, 2014.

The annual event is organised by Conrad Clark Nigeria Limited (CCN) in partnership with BusinessDay, Thomson Reuters, the UK Institute of Risk Management (IRM), Risk and Insurance Managers Association (RIMSON), and Association of Enterprise Risk Management Professionals (AERMP).

According to the organisers of the event, nominations and submissions of entries for the award categories would run between August 4 and September 18, 2014.

The categories for this year's award are: Risk Manager of the Year (now called Business Day Risk Manager of Year), Banking and Financial Services Risk Award, Insurance and Pension Services Risk Award, Telecoms and Media Services Risk Award, Manufacturing and Industry Risk Award as well as the Oil & Gas Services Risk Award.

A new award category - the Young Risk Manager of the Year, for individuals between ages 25 to 30, would also be making its debut this year, they disclosed.

According to the Chief Executive Officer, CCN, Mr. Joachim Adebayo Adenusi, "more than any other time in the history of our nation, risk management must be on the agenda of every organisation- private, public, not-for-profit and even religious organisations. That's the reason we are organising this award to generate discourse around the strategic importance of risk management and accord deserved recognition on distinguished practitioners and organisations."

Some of the organisational winners of the inaugural NRA in 2013 were: Access Bank Plc (The Banking & Financial Services Award); Mansard Insurance (Insurance & Pension Services), Guinness Nigeria Plc (Manufacturing and Industry); among others.
