The Speakers
Mr, David Smith is the Managing Director of “Risk Matters” a leading edge consultancy, working in the areas of risk management, emergency management, business continuity, risk perception, cultural change and engagement, workers compensation and rehabilitation, and is a motivational after dinner speaker. He has the Corporate Risk Manager for the Victorian WorkCover authority and held senior management positions in various public sector organisations.

David has worked for the last thirty five years in the risk, emergency and safety industries and brings a wealth of experience to his presentation. He has spoken at the 2005 HKARMS and the 2008 PSAM9 conferences in Hong Kong.

Programme highlights:
The Speaker will demonstrate how the 2009 bushfires in which 173 people died and 414 people were injured caused both the Victorian Government and the Victorian Community to concentrate their emergency risk mitigation strategies in a narrow defined area, ignoring an "all hazards" approach.

As a result community programs and agency preparedness was focused on "wild fire" mitigation despite the fact that the risk profile of many communities indicated this was not their highest risk. The September 2010, and January 2011 floods meant that both the government and the community were ill prepared to deal with other hazards.

The speaker then demonstrates how our organisations make exactly the same mistake all the time and provides examples of how we can prevent this from happening.
