The Single Most Valuable Investment You Can Make Today

to Sustain Your Business For Tomorrow


We learned many things from a tumultuous year and one was that extreme unpredictable risks can and do happen in business, often with severe consequences.

This course is a unique opportunity for you to use those experiences to grow more confidently as a business owner or manager, by learning how to stabilise and protect your business dream for the future.

Why Risk Management?


You learned a lot about yourself and your business in 2020.

  • You learned that risks are uncertain events that can have a positive or negative effect on your business.
  • You experienced major risks, maybe for the first time, but probably not for the last time.
  • And you learned that you never want to be so unprepared again for anything that could potentially wipe out your business dream.

So put that valuable business experience and personal learning to work and create your own simple risk management process now, to ensure you are always in the best position to 'see ahead of the curve' and protect your business investment for the future.

This course is adapted from the International Standard of Risk Management (ISO:31000) so you can trust that each process will deliver. I provide you with a variety of engaging materials so you have different techniques to address risk in the way that makes sense to you.

You will receive:

  • a 50 page ebook to download
  • 15 online instructional videos as I talk you through each step
  • female-focused case studies
  • optional activities and tools
  • a forum for your questions with instructor support to ensure you know how to apply the steps, and
  • all the templates you need to establish your own risk management process.

Best of all, the course uses examples of small business owners to help you see that not everything is a risk in business. Instead, we look at where you want your business to go, how you plan to get to there, and focus on those risks that might disrupt or enhance those plans.

Neuroscience shows us that your brain senses how you feel about your safety when times are uncertain, and guides your actions accordingly. This means that your personal tolerance for risk affects how you identify and treat risks in your business. It's important to find a balance between identifying negative risks while also striving to locate positive opportunities which will grow your business.

Identifying positive risks can keep you financially viable for longer, strengthening and sustaining your business in very difficult times. We show you how to identify and assess any new opportunity so that you can decide whether it provides the best value for your business. To get you started, we include a bonus guide to proven sources of opportunity.

Being a self-paced course you can start today and have a risk process in place in just a few hours. There truly is no better time to gain greater certainty over an unpredictable environment and strengthen your business capability to prepare for whatever lies ahead.

Managing Risk & Opportunity in Business

Your Instructor



Hi, I’m Irene and I’m here to share with you all that I’ve learned and experienced about managing risk during my 15 years in business – only some of which prepared me for 2020!

My qualifications include a Diploma of Project Management and a Post-graduate Certificate in Entrepreneurship and Innovation, with risk management being a major focus. But it was my experience in running risk workshops around Australia in the mining industry, coaching project managers and CEOs in risk processes, teaching risk management in project qualifications and applying these same techniques to my own business that led me to develop this highly practical and absolutely essential course for all business owners.

The course has an intentional female focus because women often have less exposure to risk management in employment, and many female-owned businesses are under enormous pressure to survive at this time. It is my mission to build business capability and confidence in women so that you can sustain your businesses for tomorrow.

Who is it for?


Experienced business owners / managers

This course was developed for experienced owner/managers of small and medium sized businesses, micro businesses and sole traders. It will be most beneficial for those who do not have an existing risk management process, have only a partial process with gaps (for example, a list of risks but no consistent way of assessing, treating or reviewing them), or have a reactive approach to risk management i.e. ‘I’ll fix it once it’s broken!"


New business owners/managers

If you are just starting out in business, this course is an essential foundation to ensure that you don't lose your investment of time and money by missing risks that could disrupt or even close the business in its first few years. With an extremely unstable external environment facing business now, ground yourself with a solid understanding of how to assess and treat risks, and use positive risk to strengthen your foundation. Risks don't wait until you have your products and marketing up and running!


Anyone in project roles or organisations

Anyone wanting to learn and understand risk management for professional or personal development will find this course a suitable grounding in the International Risk Management Standard. The case studies are applied to business, but can be translated to any organisation, corporate environment and to projects.


Not-For-Profit Organisations

Managers and staff operating Not-for-Profit organisations where risk management processes have not kept pace with current times or have not been considered a priority of the organisation prior to 2020. The pressures on NFPs to survive are as great as ever, so this course is an affordable one-off investment in risk management to help you address an uncertain future.



Who is it NOT for?

Businesses and organisations with an existing ISO accredited risk management process would not require this course.

Businesses and organisations with a proven risk management process that is successfully addressing the risks facing the business. However employees may benefit from the course by learning how to implement risk activities across the organisation.

Individuals with prior qualifications, skills or extensive experience in risk management.
