The International Risk Congress is organised by the Risk & Compliance Platform Europe.

Arend-Jan Hermsen regularly photographs business events such as the Risk & Compliance Congresses. For Arend-Jan, taking photos means capturing a memory. But images often say more than words. A good photo is a photo that you find fascinating and that evokes past memories. Images are an important part of our communication. And this is still true: in our everyday communication, good images continue to play an important role. Arend-Jan has his own photographic studio in Noordwijk in the Netherlands. His mobile studio can be easily transported to a new location.
