About the Webinar

Do you Know your EQ? The EQ, or “Exposure Quotient” looks at myriad risks food and beverage companies must balance in order to protect consumers, customers, shareholders, and their brands. Assessing your own company’s risk exposure on a periodic basis is a sign of a mature risk culture and is key to identifying emerging risks as well as resourcing appropriately, avoiding complacency, and striving for continuous improvement.

In this training webinar, join Melanie Neumann (President of Neumann Risk Services, LLC and Executive Vice President of Matrix Sciences) as she provides insight into the current and emerging risk landscape.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • The totality of risks the food industry needs to manage on a day to day basis (there are more than you think!)
  • Tips and tools for how to mitigate/reduce these risks and incorporate these strategies into your enterprise risk management (ERM) program 

  • How your assessment score helps your company better allocate time, talent, and treasure to the highest risk factors facing your company today 

  • How your assessment score helps develop better metrics to propel you on your path to continuous improvement
