Some Blind Spots in Risk Management (Bill Panning)
The current financial crisis has spawned extensive debate concerning its causes and cures.  Perhaps it should also prompt risk management professionals to consider whether there are blind spots in their ways of thinking about, measuring, and managing risk.  In his talk Bill will focus on crucial gaps in our current risk paradigms, on the blind spots that they creates and on the psychological factors that make us reluctant to recognize and correct these blind spots.

Chicken Aegean – boneless breast of chicken (stuffed with spinach, wild mushrooms, Roma tomatoes, feta cheese and fresh basil topped with a lemon b├ęchamel sauce), rice pilaf
Vegetarian Pasta – Mediterranean Pasta with fresh baby spinach, diced Roma tomatoes, Greek olives, capers, feta cheese, red wine, artichoke hearts and fresh basil
Kosher (cRc, The Kosher Gourmet)

Both Chicken and Vegetarian choices include Chicago Mart Plaza salad, roasted vegetables, bread rolls, and Eli’s “turtle” cheesecake for dessert.

Breaks between the sessions will include hot and cold beverages (coffee, tea variety, soda pop, water), and soft baked jumbo cookies (including chocolate chunk, pecan, oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, mocha latte, fudgy brownie, chocolate truffle, toffee bar, almond milk chocolate).
