Recently, I had the pleasure of participating in the RIMS ERM student challenge! The RIMS ERM conference, on November 4th and 5th, challenged students to create a Ted Talk-style video presentation addressing the following question: “Given the speed and complexity of emerging risk, how will risk management and risk management professionals change in the next ten years?” The RIMS Strategic and Enterprise Risk Management Council members judged our entries, and the top 10 videos were shown at the conference and voted on by all attendees.
When I first decided to create a video, I did some initial research and realized how much artificial intelligence was changing the risk field. I was intrigued, and ended up focusing my presentation on the way AI complicated risk, and how professionals must adapt to these changes. I created my video from my living room, where I used a microphone and spotlight to attempt to create the feel of a Ted Talk video. With some editing help from my sister, I ended up with an awesome end product. My video made it to the top 10, where conference attendees voted on the best videos. While I did not end up in the top 2 videos, I did receive a lot of valuable feedback on my talk from attendees. I appreciated the experience that RIMS gave students and learned a lot from other students’ presentations. The ERM conference gave me the opportunity to learn more about risk management in a new and different way.
