    ICW Member Peter Walmsley wins 2020 Travel Photographer of the Year title in Colours of Life category With a photo of Bangalore flower market

    WINNER: Colours of Life - Peter Walmsley, UK

    Winner's Biography

    Peter Walmsley first became interested in photography through his chemistry teacher who ran an after-school club. He struggled with film for many years until a whole new world of image creation opened up, with the arrival of digital cameras. He joined a local camera club where the combination of supportive learning and regular competitions helped him to improve and gain various photographic qualifications. He subsequently became a judge in the Southern Counties Photographic Federation.

    Peter earns his living as a civil servant, helping to deliver aid projects to developing countries. This aligns with a significant interest in foreign travel, particularly to east and south east Asia, which led in turn to an interest in street photography as a means to capture local culture as seen through daily life.

The onslaught of the devasting impact of the pandemic, together with the global effects of climate change, has clearly shown that the traditional enterprise risk management models based on analysis of historical trends are no longer valid in isolation. Agile adaptation to changing circumstances in a new enterprise resilient management model is now required for organizational survival and success.

    It is with sadness that ICW has heard of the sudden death of Bev Waugh.

    Bev served for many years on the ICW Management Board as the Atkins representative. David Hawkins paid this tribute to Bev...

    "I had many interesting and valuable sessions with Bev, and her strong support for the ICW was always appreciated. She was a super strong character with a brilliant mind that contributed a great deal to the Atkins-ICW community."

    We send our heartfelt condolences on behalf of all the ICW community to her family, friends, and colleagues.

    On 7–10 September 2020, ICW successfully ran its first classroom-based Leaders Course since the Covid-19 lockdown in March.

    With an emphasis on safety, we have to give a massive thank you to our hosts at Scarmen Conference Centre, Warwick, for ensuring the strictest levels of cleanliness, social distancing and availability of PPE. All delegates have expressed their appreciation for the many steps taken to ensure social distancing and the highest levels of sanitation and cleanliness throughout their stay.

    On the course itself we welcomed delegates from public and private sector organisations. Benefitting from cross learning, and the unique material of the course, we are pleased to say all delegates successfully passed our testing requirements and will be invited to become members of ICW.

    Equipped with new skills, perspectives and contacts, they will return to their respective organisations to play leading roles in the effective adoption of collaborative working. We at ICW will follow their collaborative journeys with interest!

    Thanks to all who joined our recent online session, which brought together both ICW members and representatives from a number of institutes and associations to exchange experiences and ideas as to what we have learned so far from addressing the pandemic. The discusison and input was both lively and informative around the challenges faced and how these may influence us in the future. Many examples came across as to how organisations had quickly adapted to harness technology and the value of their robust relationships both internally and externally in difficult times. Several common themes developed including the need for leadership to ensure they create the right balance going forward where home working may be seen to have economic benefits carried the risk of diluting both internal and external relationships, people need interaction. There was a focus on the need to temper the use of technolology and build trust both within organisations and external relationships so the technology does not become a barrier to effective engagement. Behaviours at every level had a strong focus during the discussions to ensure maintaining a work/life balance. The full recording will shortly be available on the ICW website.
