Welcome to the December edition of the R2A newsletter, the last of 2018. It’s been another busy period since we last wrote, most notably with Richard presenting at three conferences. In October it was the International Standard for maritime Pilot Organisations' (ISPO) International User Group (IUG) Annual conference in Brisbane on “How to improve the Risk Assessment Model with Due Diligence”. This received great feedback, including from the ISPO working group who said they want to adopt the due diligence approach in their Standard. This was followed in November with a presentation “Wildlife Strikes: What your Airport needs to know to keep it out of the Courts” at the Australian Airports Association National Conference, also in Brisbane, and then “Demonstrating Due Diligence in Marine Pilotage” at the New Zealand Maritime Pilots Association (NZMPA) in Wellington, NZ.
As you can see, we can tailor our presentations on engineering due diligence to your audience; if you’d like us to present in 2019 we’d love the opportunity to discuss your needs.
Gaye also attended the recent Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Directors’ Update on “Corporate Governance in Overdrive”. It was a really good event that discussed the expectation of Boards to ensure their organisation is well governed, ethical and responsible. Or, in our words, diligent!
Below we share an article from Richard discussing the recent adoption by European Courts of due diligence and what this means for an entire team’s diligent decision making, we have the release of the first 2019 dates of our Engineering Due Diligence Workshop with EEA, and a quick wrap of 2018.
But before you scroll down, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and safe holiday season. Our last office day for 2018 is Friday 21 December and we re-open on Monday 7 January.
If you’d like to start 2019 with your first diligent decision, get in contact for a friendly chat on how we can be your independent risk advisers. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1300 772 333
