“The ‘Horizons’ conference provides us with an ideal opportunity in which to do just that and I am personally looking forward to meeting and speaking with our customers in the US.

“I am also particularly excited by the calibre of speakers we have this year, which will provide key risk management insights from some prominent thought leaders in the industry.”

Mr Manley will discuss Boeing’s risk management programs and how Ideagen’s Q-Pulse software and services supports safety action programs and operational risk assessments. Mrs Hairston will address how Reynolds’ leverage Ideagen’s Pentana software for fraud investigation programmes while Mr Mainardi discusses the key to identifying root cause and how to facilitate change within an organisation.

Ideagen’s US partner, ECL2, will also conduct a session on maintaining a training programme.

Mr Dorks added: “As well as discussions on risk management, quality, safety and compliance in general, we will also provide guests with a sneak peak of what we have planned for our Q-Pulse and Pentana products in the coming months.

“It really is shaping up to be a fantastic event and one that we are really looking forward to.”
