CONFERENCE SEASON

SATARLA COMING TO SOMEWHERE NEAR YOU...

The Satarla team will be speaking at a myriad of conferences in exciting locations such as Windhoek and Vancouver over the next few months.  We will be sharing case studies, discussing some of our new techniques, and challenging ourselves to constantly improve our approaches and attitudes to managing risk.   


Let us know if you are going to be at any of these events - it would be fantastic to see you!

South Africa RISKS 2017

IRMSA RISK REPORT: 3RD EDITION

For the past three years, the Institute of Risk Management South Africa have released a South Africa focussed risk report.  This insight to the country level and industry level risks is a must read for anyone who is interested in the region.

Rhino Action Group Effort

SEASONS GREETINGS FROM SATARLA

Rather than bombard you with seasons greetings cards, Satarla put that cash to good use by donating it to the Rhino Action Group Effort   www.rhonerage.org


Set up to assist in the fight against illegal rhino poaching, RAGE provides a safe conduit for public contributions to ensure that donations to help protect rhinos results in effective action.

HOW TO BUILD A SIMPLE RISK BOWTIE

BOWTIES IN THE GEOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF LONDON

The interactive and cross-discipline Bryan Lovell conference will be peppered with bowties.


Used to aid the mix of policy makers, environmentalists, industrialists, and geoscientists make sense of risks arising from the likes of groundwater flooding, water contamination, and rapid environmental change, these simple bowties will be used as communication and dialogue tools.


We look forward to seeing you there!

MISSION TO MARS

SATARLA RESEARCH ASSOCIATES COLLABORATING WITH NASA

In collaboration with the NASA Langley Research institute, Satarla research associates UQuant are helping to quantify and understand uncertainties affecting the core stage of NASA's next-generation Space Launch System (SLS) that is planned to carry humans to Mars in the mid 2030s. UQuant's contribution to the project is the development of new computer algorithms that allow a better reconciliation of early-stage test data with the complex computer models that describe the rockets physical behaviour. 

In particular, the problem addressed by the team was the improvement of computer models helping NASA to understand the rockets structural behaviour during the extreme launch conditions while it flies through the earth's atmosphere. The main difficult in these conditions is that the rockets structural dynamics are affected by too many uncertainties to be obtained are trustworthy prediction using conventional engineering methods. Therefore, UQuant employs a unique hybrid approach that combines risk quantification methods developed by Wallstreet scientists with NASA's engineering models. The results help to better understand risks and also improve safety and performance. Due to a special collaboration agreement, UQuant can commercially employ the developed methodologies in other areas as well.

LEARNING LESSONS FROM OTHER SECTORS

JULY CONFERENCES COME TO LONDON (UK)

Many of us in Satarla have experience in the extractives sectors, be they mining or oil & gas. This is why we have teamed up with the Geological Society and the Institute of Risk Management to organise one week's worth of meetings, events and conferences during the week of the 10th of July 2017.


10/11th July:  Deep dive into key areas of risk faced by the mining and oil & gas industries

12th July:  Summarise what we have learnt on day 1+2, and discuss with industry leaders

13/14th July:  Investigate how other sectors (medicine, military, finance, etc...) perceive and deal with risk.


If you are interested in taking part in any of the above meetings, please either contact us by emailing sarah@satarla.com, or visiting the Geological Society website to register here:

WATER AND MINING

MANAGING LOCAL PARTNERSHIPS AND DELIVERING SUSTAINABILITY

Women in Mining (UK), together with Herbert Smith Freehills will be hosting their first technical event of 2017 on the 19th January.  Facilitated by Dr Sarah Gordon (Satarla Director), a panel of specialists will discuss risks such as water cleanliness, supply, and security, as faced by mining companies around the world.

PROFESSORIAL INAUGURATION OF TANKISO MOLOI

CONGRATULATIONS TANKISO!

We can now address our co-founder and Associate Tankiso Moloi as Professor!


Tankiso is now the Professor of Accountancy at the University of Johannesburg based on his fundamental research into strategic global financial stability in the form of corporate governance, enterprise risk management, and assurance.  


Congratulations Tankiso and the University of Johannesburg on gaining a brilliant mind.

OFF PISTE

Ollie de boer joins satarla in canada

Welcome to Ollie who joins Satarla from the ski slopes in BC!  Having recently left the worlds largest security services provider, where he was the Group Risk Manager, Ollie has relocated from London (UK) to Whistler.  Here he will be perfecting his ski-cross... and doing a little consulting with the Satarla team in his spare time.

FROM ONE LONDON TO ANOTHER

SATARLA VENTURES TO 'THE OTHER' LONDON

This month we found ourselves travelling past Cambridge and Oxford to get to London... which also has a river Thames flowing through it.  Thanks to everyone in London Ontario for making us feel so welcome and at home (even in the halloween party...!).

SATARLA IS 2!

A YEAR IN BOWTIES

Satarla is two years old this month.  Now with a thriving team of Associates based around the world, working on projects with a myriad of different industry sectors, we are constantly honing our approaches to practical and accessible risk management.  We wonder what our third year has in store for us?!

VANCOUVER LAUNCH

SATARLA SPONSORS INFOMINE'S RISK AND RESILIENCE IN MINING CONFERENCE

November saw the launch of Satarla in North America.  Headed up by Ollie who will be based in British Colombia, he will be supported by the rest of the Satarla team.  


The conference allowed us to share our experience in designing, embedding and training in Enterprise Risk Management.  We presented our Extended Enterprise tool which can be used in any organisation and at any level to establish the context for your risk assessment.


Thank you to everyone who looked after us in Vancouver, we had a terrific time and look forward to working with you again soon!
