Annual Review 2020: Progressing together in a challenging year

Annual update from Simon Wills, ORX Executive Director

A tough but rewarding year

"Last year was a period of change for all of us, so rather than my usual written letter to ORX members and subscribers, I decided to do a video update for this annual review. Watch my update to find out more about our future strategy, which is focused on supporting operational risk management to be effective in a digital world."

ORX Highlights of 2020

Last year was a challenging time for the whole world – and this was true for both ORX and our member organisations. However, despite the changed circumstances we found ourselves working in, with the help of our members we delivered new and planned activities, hosted virtual forums and continued to grow the association, reaching more individuals with our helpful content and engaging events than ever before. Here are just some of the things we did:

  • Launched discussion groups to bring ORX members together to discuss key topics, such as climate and resilience
  • Held regular calls for ORX members to discuss the challenges of coronavirus
  • Hosted virtual events allowing members to work together and network despite restrictions
  • Launched LeadersConnect, our new community for senior operational risk professionals
  • Extended the ORX Reference Taxonomy to include causes and impacts
  • Produced guidance on how to capture the operational risk impacts of coronavirus
