It's a reality that in any business there will be risks, but The Stepping Stone Project are striving to help Hunter Region business identify, mitigate and control their risks.
In a seminar scheduled for next week, The Stepping Stone Project is bringing together five thought leaders in the Cornerstones for Managing Risk in Your Business Seminar.

Personal safety and armed robbery minimisation techniques, as well as data security will all be discussed by the expert speaker panel.
