Once again, Business Reporter is shortlisted for top journalism award

The quality of the journalism at Business Reporter has once again been confirmed as we have been shortlisted in the Journalism of the Year category of the IRM Global Risk Awards 2016.

Business Reporter last won the IRM's Risk Management Journalism of the Year award in 2014.

“It’s a terrific accolade for us,” says Business Reporter MD Bradley Scheffer. “It shows how seriously we take our coverage of the risk management sector.  Both commercially and editorially, we understand risk management and what is important to the people in the industry.”

Editor Daniel Evans said: “We won the inaugural IRM award for risk management journalism in 2014 and made the shortlist for 2015. To be back on the shortlist again for 2016 is no fluke – it shows how consistently well we cover risk management from all angles.”

The central feature in this year’s shortlisted coverage involved three exclusive interviews by Joanne Frearson with The Risk Enforcers – people whose day-to-day life demands assessing risks coolly and quickly. We talked to a hostage negotiator, a fighter pilot and a poker player who talked about how their hugely differing experiences translated into managing difficult business scenarios.

The winner will be revealed at the Institute of Risk Management’s black tie awards dinner at the prestigious London Hilton on Park Lane early next year.
