The Megrow Podcast is LIVE!!!

Episodes Released

I’m very pleased to announce the release of Episode 1 and Episode 2 of the Megrow Podcast.

The Podcast is hosted on Megrow’s YouTube channel. I aptly named it the “Asia Risk and Opportunity Podcast” or “AROC” for short.

Episode one is a general, introductory episode explaining the why / what / how:

Episode two dives right into the core matter of Enterprise Risk Management: what are the benefits to business?. I use CyberRisk as an example to demonstrate the tangible outcomes of good Enterprise Risk Management. “Tangible” in this context clearly refers to dollars and cents.

why?

I’ve been thinking for quite some time about which channels are best suited to share my thoughts about ERM. Obviously, this blog is my first choice, followed by LinkedIn and then Twitter. These three avenues all have their benefits and particularities. But I always felt something was missing. After quite some pondering, I decided to try a Podcast to complement my current channels.

looking for contributors

This podcast is fully open to anybody who is looking for a channel to share ideas and views about risks and opportunities. However, I have two border conditions: first, the message must be of practical value and secondly, a distinctive focus on matters in and across Asia is sought. Ironically, I broke my second rule with Episode 2 already, so next time I need to do better.

the future

I’m planning to release a few episodes over the course of 2019. However, neither do I want to stress nor limit myself by an overly specific target. If I find sufficient speakers, I might release an episode every 2 weeks, otherwise there will be just a handful in 2019.

The beauty of this podcast lies in its flexibility with regards to length and looks. It can be a 60 seconds video or a 30 minutes conversation – and anything in between.

Hence, if you are passionate about a risk-relevant topic with a distinctive Asia-relevant touch to it: please please stand-up and get in touch with me. Recording and editing isn’t a big anymore. Let us have a chat soon!



Megrow Consulting Heads into Year 4!

Happy Birthday Megrow

Megrow Consulting has turned three. A big “thank you” to all the clients, business partners, advisors and supporters for another fruitful year! Time really flies. Sometimes it is hard to believe that Megrow now is in its forth year of operation.

a brief glance back

Clients understandably ask for references prior to engaging Megrow’s services.  Confidentiality is key, hence I cannot share details of prior and current engagements. However,  I did a bit of data mining to get a view over the services Megrow provided over the past 3+ years.

ERM, Underwriting and Strategy work make up for app 70% of Megrow’s services over the past three years.

The remaining 30% comprise of other work such as coaching, training, providing second opinion on matters and similar type of work. Clients comprise local, regional and global players in Asia and the European Union.

Risk and the management thereof is a growing business. Opportunities for Megrow to deploy its distinct value proposition to clients will continue to emerge. Stay tuned for updates on this blog. In the meantime, you could read some of my more technical articles about ERM here.


 

The Funny Side of It

You think you’ve seen the climax of business jargon?

Have a look at the FT’s very own Lucy Kellaway’s “Guffipedia” (here) and you will be surprised.

And just in case you come across corporate guff as well, the FT columnist encourages you to submit entries to grow the collection!

Enjoy!!
