The Travel Risk Academy is more than just a learning platform, it is a community that shares knowledge and views about travel risk management

What it is

Travel Risk Academy is a learning and educational community designed to guide companies and individuals along their journey in travel risk management

Travel risk management is a diverse subject covering a whole range of topics that involve many areas within a business.  Whilst many organisations have mature processes in some aspects of travel risk management, this is often inconsistent across all areas of the business and effective training and communication is an area that in nearly all cases requires a strategy and ongoing attention.

The Travel Risk Academy has been set up to address this requirement and to provide a place where people and organisations can develop their understanding of how to proactively manage the risks inherent in their travel programmes. 

If the last few years have shown us anything, it’s that anything can happen, to anyone, at any time. Travel risk is not new, in fact it’s one of the times that an individual is most vulnerable when working for an organisation and when the organisation itself is exposed to risk. However, the identification, management and education of risk, until now, has been the responsibility of a few people within a business. Ultimately, if a risk strategy is going to work, everyone in the organisation needs to know about it, to understand their responsibilities and ultimately to know what to do if a situation occurs.

The introduction of ISO:31000 (Risk Management) and more recently ISO:31030 (Travel Risk Management) have suggested that businesses take a different approach to managing risk; that there is no quick solution or single way to do something, instead it’s about the identification and consideration of the potential risks to your travellers and your organisation and your proposed ways of mitigating them – you make the decisions for your business based on your own risk appetite; we’re here to help you do that.

Why It’s Needed

Travel risks can negatively affect individuals and organisations physically, financially, operationally and reputationally
Travel management has never really had a permanent home.  It normally sits somewhere between procurement and finance for most organisations and risk and security functions, if in existence at all, are generally not involved in travel management.  Over the years the role of the travel manager has evolved, there is a new expectation, after the global pandemic, that their knowledge far exceeds what it was before; but the travel industry is complicated and unwieldy and risk management is a brand-new skill set. 

Travel risks can negatively affect individuals and organisations physically, financially, operationally and reputationally, therefore, the management of travel risk needs to be effective and to become a recognised discipline within organisations. If we are going to get this right and run safe, sustainable travel programmes there is a lot of educating to do, across all of your workforce.  We have created the Travel Risk Academy to ensure that your people, at all levels, have a place to learn new skills and gain new qualifications that will ultimately keep them and your organisation safer.

How it works

The Travel Risk Academy is more than just a learning platform, it is a community that shares knowledge and views about travel risk management.  It is important to us that the content we produce for you is not only thought provoking and practical, but that it gives you what you need, as you need it.  In addition to our learning platform and website we have a LinkedIn Travel Risk Academy Community page and we actively encourage you to talk to other members, we’re all in this together to learn and shape the future.
