TEDxHKUST – Mitigating Risk in Emerging Markets

Steve Vickers presents a talk on risk mitigation in Asia, at the TEDx conference held at HKUST.

Resolving international kidnapping and product extortion cases, launching operations against Triad and Asian Organized Crime groups, commanding the Royal Hong Kong Police Force's Criminal Intelligence Bureau and being chased by top corporations for expert security advice. If this sounds too cool to be true, meet Steve Vickers who will gladly say "been there, done that". Steve is the founder and CEO of Steve Vickers and Associates, a specialist risk and security consulting company. Formerly serving as the head of an international risk advisory firm, Steve has had unrivalled experience in conducting sensitive business intelligence projects, major financial investigations and crisis containment assignments -- all that while speaking fluent Cantonese!

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.
