from a prior SimErgy ERM Boot Camp

“This boot camp did an excellent job of laying out a comprehensive framework for implementing an ERM program in any business. I haven’t seen anything else like this and believe this would benefit any company regardless of what stage they are in in adopting ERM in their business. The boot camp took us thru all the stages of a complete ERM program with lots of hands-on exercises that drove home the key concepts.”
   Cam Smith, Manager — Reinsurance and Product Risk, Prudential Financial
