World Risk Day 2013 is an event when and where industry thought leaders and peers can gather together virtually to discuss the major trends, challenges and best practices in risk mitigation and risk management.

This year that event will take place on May 14, 2013.

The theme of this second annual event has been given the theme “Shattering the Project Myth”, and again will introduce a virtual summit participation opportunity based on webinars, interviews and live Q&A sessions with “best-in-class” project managers and threat management practitioners from around the world.

World Risk Day is open to everyone who wants to learn how risk management is as important to the success of a project as is delivering that project completion on-time and on-budget.
