Program Recap

 

A Creative Approach to Risk Management: The Robson Risk Management Model

 

A cold, sunny winter day greeted ILEA MSP members as they met at the newly renovated Graduate Hotel. All were quickly warmed by a welcome from Gretchen Culver coupled with stunning flowers from Flowerama and gourmet hot chocolate. 

The topic for the meeting was: A Creative Approach to Risk Management. Leading the discussion was Dr. Linda M. Robson, Associate Professor in Endicott College's School of Hospitality Management. Dr. Robson is a leader in her field, she saw a gap in the industry and delveloped The Robson Risk Management Model. This model is a holistic approach to risk management. The approach has five components: Personal Risk Perception; Risk Identification; Risk Assessment; Risk Strategies; and Risk Evaluation. ILEA members apprecaited Dr. Robson's perspective coming from the events community. Risk is a broad topic, having an expert in the industry speak specificaly to the events communites' concerns was a valuable message for the ILEA community. 

Following the meeting the Graduate Hotel led attendees on tours of the newly renovated space to meeting attendees.  With over 20,000 square feet of meeting and event space, the hotel has two large ballrooms, smaller flexible event venues, breakout rooms and boardrooms designed to accommodate several types of events including weddings, social gatherings, receptions, corporate meetings and more.
