How to Choose a Risk Management Consultancy - ACTN Strategies


How to Choose a Risk Management Consultancy

Risk management is strategic, multifaceted, and most importantly unique and personal to a business. While some risks, such as safety and compliance requirements, are more proscribed, how a company chooses to build its culture, position itself in the marketplace, and respond to external factors are part of a business’s individual risk management strategy.

And risk management consultancies vary widely. When it comes to partnering with a company to develop a business continuity plan or develop future leaders, you want to choose a firm that shares your goals and values and will do the job well, every single time.

Before you choose a risk management consulting firm, ask yourself these three questions:


Do the Services Offered Align with My Needs?

This is the easiest place to start. Evaluate your needs as a company and determine where you’d like a little extra help. Look closely at each risk management firm’s website before getting in touch to understand what they truly offer – not just what they’re willing to sell you.

At ACTN Strategies, we offer services in three categories: Operational resilience, cultural transformation, and global intelligence. Simply put, we can help your business develop the tools needed to thrive during disruption, address workplace challenges before they become painful and costly, and offer insights into external affairs ahead of major leadership decisions.


What is the Risk Management Consultancy’s Reputation?

Read reviews and ask around! What is the risk management firm known for? How have they performed for previous and current clients? Here’s what our clients have to say about ACTN Strategies:

“They will get in the trenches; they will do the work alongside you.”

“They’re a small company that really delivers a customized service.”

“My heartfelt thanks to ACTN Strategies for your leadership… and willingness to problem solve and collaborate…We could not have done it without you.”


What Are the Company’s Values? 

Knowing what a company values—what they stand for—can give you an idea of what to expect from their work, and you can decide if it meshes well with your needs and values.

At ACTN Strategies, we take a holistic approach to risk management with the end goal of empowering our clients to Rise to Every Occasion.
