Who we are

Andy Garlick

The managing director of The Risk Agenda is Andy Garlick. Andy has been in risk since 1982. This started with work on nuclear risk assessment in the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority. Since then he has held senior positions involving the development of a number of risk consulting businesses. These included the risk management business of AEA Technology, followed by Risk Solutions, the management consulting practice of AEA Technology, and Manex (UK) Limited.

He has worked with clients in the nuclear, transport, oil and gas, chemical and government sectors on many assignments both before and after setting up The Risk Agenda.  He has a hands-on approach and gets involved with the work of clients, in their offices on a day-to-day basis.

His mission during this time has been to make risk methods more accessible and more business-focussed.  He has seen risk management move from being a peripheral and esoteric activity, mainly concerned with safety risks, to become a core business function.  He is the author of two books on risk and uncertainty – see our resources page.

He is a Fellow of the Institute of Risk Management and for some years was on the organising committee of both their North West group, Networking Northwest, and their Special Interest Group on PPP/PFI.

The Risk Agenda Network

Although The Risk Agenda is a small firm, we have numerous connections with other consulting organisations which enables us to set up and participate in larger assignment teams.

We are happy to work with other firms in an associate role and the management of larger assignments is a core competence of The Risk Agenda.
