Risk is something that most people spend a huge amount of time trying to reduce in our workplace - but what if risk was the very reason you are in business? That is the day-to-day reality for those involved in the Adventure Tourism Sector.

Jamie Simpson will share his start in the industry, employed by companies on the African continent. Jamie has a unique understanding of dealing with hazards in this special part of the world. He will be sharing his insights and learnings and explaining how work in adventure tourism relates to work in a normal commercial environment. Jamie now undertakes audits as part of the new framework for Adventure Tourism, lending his experience as to how the industry approaches risk and control on a daily basis.
