Risk Management

Who's Got Your Back?

I’m on a Mission to Transform Smart Business People Into Exceptional Risk Managers.

Hi, Glyn here.

I’m a veteran risk manager with 23 years experience serving hundreds of clients. All the while, I have maintained a free newsletter and this website to help practicing risk managers.

I am your risk management coach. I help you succeed at risk management and in your career.

When you succeed, your company succeeds.

I am independent and deliver most of my services remotely. That means my coaching is convenient and inexpensive.

Sound good?
