Having stepped off a flight back to the UK from Johannesburg, posing for a photoshoot wasn't exactly what Sarah (Satarla MD) wanted to be doing. However Arthur was generous in his interviewing and has written a great article in this quarter's Institute of Risk Management's Enterprise Risk Magazine.
The article focuses on the Satarla philosophy of keeping risk management simple. By doing this you not only leverage an individual's natural decision making ability, but also make space (and budget) for exploring more advanced techniques such as using satellites to monitor our risks...
Delivering training on behalf of the Institute of Risk Management, we had the fortune of working with the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI). These four days of work were especially important to us, not just because many of us enjoy sailing, but because some of our number used to be lifeguards in our former lives.
The naturally proactive approach to managing the very serious risks faced by the charity, including volunteers speeding out to sea on specially designed and built vessels was fantastic. Thank you RNLI.
31st December 2017
The annual flagship event of the Geological Society provided the bridge between their themed year of 2017 (Risk) and 2018 (Resources) in November. Satarla were asked to provide our views on what Social Responsibility really means, both on a mine site, but also in the broader context of corporate and sector as a whole.
All talks will be available to view online here
Satarla will be running a risk bowtie communication workshop at the World Bank's Understanding Risk conference to be held in Mexico City in May 2018. Understanding Risk is a community of >7,000 individuals from around the world who are experts in communicating disaster risk information. We will be showcasing how we at Satarla like to use risk bowties - simply and quickly leading to rapid decisions.
We look forward to seeing friends and meeting lots of new people there!
SATARLA is now 3.5 year's old. In that time we have:
- delivered face-to-face training to well over 1000 people all over the world.
- developed over 30 eLearning risk management modules.
- designed and embedded risk management frameworks for everyone from healthcare to agriculture companies.
- facilitated Board sessions for some of the most influential CEOs and CFOs of the world.
- built a team of more than 30 skilled risk management experts based all over the world.
- are now known as the place to go for accessible risk management that allows organisations to make dynamic decisions based on their risk knowledge.
- ... oh - and had 4 x little people (congrats to Laura for providing three of them!).
We have great plans for 2018 - bring it on!

Today's edition of the Time's newspaper contained the first special supplement on mining published in five years. Articles from the International Council on Mining & Metals (ICMM), Anglo American, Savannah Resources, Berkeley Energia and Satarla focused on the increasing demand for high tech minerals, move to digitalisation regarding the way we mine, and importance of mining in the most responsible way possible.
Check out the supplement here:
We have been working with an increasing number of organisations to source the best fit risk management software for their needs. The shear number of different softwares that brand themselves as "risk management" can make it incredibly intimidating for those who embark in this search for the first time. We are constantly on the hunt for the most exciting developments in the risk software space and therefore can provide that initial list of options matched to your requirements quickly. We dont take commission from software vendors to whom we introduce you, meaning that your final quotes from the vendors should also be that but more budget-happy.
We started the year off with a very cold blast! Toronto saw the team arrive to support our global agricultural client get to grips (pun intended) with their new risk and incident management software. Having sourced the software for them, the workshops saw us all take our mitts off to get stuck in with the configuration.
For more information on our software sourcing services, please see here. Please note, that we take zero commission from sourcing your software.
It is firmly routed in our philosophy that you need to attempt to understand the full context in which you are operating in order to truly comprehend the risks you face. Following the success of the Mining and Oil & Gas conference that we co-convened in 2017, we are again co-convening a number conferences in 2018. The first of these conferences explores the full value chain of Lithium.
When: 9th and 10th April 2018

Satarla have been working with a number of organisations including Lloyd's of London to explore opportunities within insurance that can support more sustainable mining practices. A thought leadership paper is being drafted to provide the insurance market with an overview of recent developments in the mining industry including emerging technologies, new mining frontiers and increased social expectations on mining. The aim of the report is to understand how the risk landscape is changing and how these changes might impact insurance provisions and products and understand where insurance needs to change to support responsible mining in the future. This report will be published in the summer of 2018. Thanks to all those who have been interviewed so far!
