RISC Conversation Series – the second collaboration with the SPE Curtin Student Chapter

Earlier this month RISC hosted the second instalment of its Conversation Series in partnership with the SPE Curtin Student Chapter. This collaborative series gives students the opportunity to engage in open discussions with our staff and gain insights into the latest trends and topics in the industry. The nights’ presentation ‘Management of Uncertainty in Project Performance’ given by RISC Partner Simon Whitaker, provided thoughts on what typically makes projects go over budget, why performance is so poor,  the importance of being open to feedback on work, and reviewing data with speculation on reliability and bias.

SPE Curtin Student Chapter Secretary Amy Duong had this to say about the event:

“Thank-you to our sponsor RISC  for hosting the second instalment at their office with the topic on ‘Management of Uncertainty in Projects’. The presentation was very interesting and gave us an insight on how real life projects can be disastrous if necessary precautions and uncertainty factors are not considered or taken seriously. After the presentation, there was an opportunity for us to meet some of the representatives, with some informal networking over drinks and nibbles. They were very welcoming, and genuinely interested in hearing about our studies and club activities. I would definitely recommend attending these events, a worthwhile experience!”
