Rick Shaw, President and CEO of Awareity, has been selected as the risk management session chair at the upcoming Annual Pan‐Pacific Conference in Sakai City, Osaka, Japan, June 2‐5, 2014.

This year’s conference theme is “Designing the Shared Future through Co‐Creation”. Now in its 31st year, the Pan‐Pacific Business Association provides a forum for scholars, executives, and government officials from Pacific‐Rim countries to discuss important issues relating to a better quality of life in this region. Management scholars and practioners will assess the adaptability of various new management innovations to their own business environments.

Shaw will join 3 other experts in a special session on Risk Management. Moderated by Seongbae Lim of St. Marys
University, this panel is set to push the boundaries of status quo risk management and propose fresh ideas for prevention.

Shaw will share expert advice and evidence‐based research from Awareity’s work with schools, implementing proven
solutions for student safety, bullying prevention, incident reporting, risk management, threat assessment and more.
Bullying prevention is one of the most pressing topics globally in education today. With many instances of school violence linked to bullying, schools are actively seeking effective and affordable solutions that can curtail this epidemic.

Shaw’s paper is entitled, “Risk Management Strategy and the Prevention Gapidemic: A Focus on Preventing School Bullying and Student Safety Tragedies”
