MetricStream, a market leader in Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC) solutions will join an influential group of business and political leaders to discuss new approaches to managing risk at a time when countries and businesses worldwide are facing unprecedented uncertainty. Gunjan Sinha, Executive Chairman of MetricStream, will moderate a panel discussion on the theme "Thriving on Risk" which will be part of a broader agenda revolving around bridging India's economy with the rest of the world. Mr. Sinha will be joined by prominent policy makers, statesmen, senior business executives, and thought leaders from around the world at this year's event, held from June 24-25, 2012 in Antwerp, Belgium.
With the ripple effects of the global financial crisis still being felt across Europe, leaders from countries around the world are striving to work together as one community to discover new ways of reviving and sustaining economic growth. The first step in that direction is to initiate a dialogue on a global scale to better understand the multitude of complex risks confronting businesses today.
"The Horasis Summit is a powerful forum to exchange ideas on how businesses worldwide can shape more prosperous and secure economies together," said Gunjan Sinha. "Emerging economies like India and China have become global forces to reckon with. It will be exciting to discover new ways of integrating them with the developed economies of the west, and propelling global growth forward. I'm especially looking forward to collaborating with global business leaders and heads of state on how businesses and economies can better understand, assess, and transform their risks into opportunities."
In that past, Mr. Sinha has been invited to speak at several Horasis summits in Barcelona, Munich, Lisbon, Madrid, and Naples. Mr. Sinha plays an active role in the Horasis events, sharing refreshing insights on risk management and governance, global competitiveness, entrepreneurship, and the ever-changing financial climate.
"Through the Global Business Meetings, Horasis strives to create a powerful platform for cooperation between leaders of the world," said Dr. Frank-Jürgen Richter, Chairman of Horasis. "We are delighted to have MetricStream join us as a knowledge partner at the meeting. We believe that participants will benefit tremendously from MetricStream's insights, based on the company's experience in managing risk for some of the largest global corporations."
Shankar Bhaskaran, General Manager and Vice President of International Business Operations at MetricStream will also be joining Mr. Sinha at the Horasis summit. Observed Mr. Bhaskaran, "In the aftermath of the global economic crisis, many organizations are approaching their risks with much trepidation. However, at MetricStream, we have always maintained that effective risk management is as much about understanding risks, as it is about mitigating risks.
