Dealing with global remnants of war, there will always beuncertainty. The process of beginning to define that uncertainty in order toimprove planning processes has been a revelation and has aided elements of theinternational mine action community to significantly improve their cost efficiency.The Oboni perspective is often unexpected, usually enlightening and certainlychallenges preconceptions.Denis Nkala, Chief, South-South Unit (Asia & Pacific), UNDP RegionalCentre in Bangkok. Thanks, it was an interesting presentation.F. Joly, Director Vaud Fire and Natural Disasters Insurance, Switzerland,1995: Dr. Oboni and his group developed a very simple and useful risk evaluationtool for our company with the aim to "filter" contracts that would expose us toexcessive liability.Tim Lardner, “Franco brings fresh perspectives to old ideas and stimulatesthought and discussion. Fun and personable, combined with an in depthknowledge of RM matters makes working with Franco a pleasure.” September 9,2007EDUCATION:Col. G. V., Deputy Chief CYD Project, Ministry of Defense, ConfidentialCountry “Riskopes scientific approach to cyber risks, together with soliddiscussion of alternatives, concurs to irrefutable results. Riskope does not fall inthe “lets do like everybody else” trap, but, on the contrary, always seeksinnovative and pertinent solutions to meet clients expectations and needs.Riskope maintained the budgets, widely exceeding the contractual requirements.”Simon Houlding, VP Professional Development, InfoMine Inc. “We haveworked with Franco & Cesar for more than five years presenting online andclassroom courses on risk management. It has been a rewarding experience andFrancos courses are popular with our mining audience.” September 17, 2007Peter Schaub, President, Advanced Habitat Technologies Inc, Vancouver:“Franco is the best seminar leaders I know.

I have hired Francoto work on risk identification, risk mitigation and to run courses for staff on riskmanagement. His understanding of risk and his ability to put it into terms for thelay-manager is excellent.” November 12, 2007Peter Ficzycz, BC Hydro, Canada: Thank you for a wonderful and fabulousRISK Management Course. Your presentation of material was superb. I haveattended several Risk Management sessions in the past, and I really appreciatedyour approach, both from an academic standpoint, as well as concrete examples.Tricia Pepper, Marketing Manager Japan & Korea, Financial Times Japan:In July 2000 the Financial Times engaged in a co-promotion with the Oboni groupduring the G8 Summit held in Okinawa, Japan. During that time, I had theprivilege of attending a half-day course offered by Dr. Oboni on Risk Management.Not only was the course highly informative and pertinent to a multitude ofscenarios across a wide variety of industries, it was also extremely interesting - afactor often missing from other professional development training seminars Ihave attended in the past. Before attending the seminar I did not really believethat RM was applicable to my industry (publishing) or to my profession(marketing). Dr. Oboni’s course made me realize that RM is in fact pertinent toevery manager in every industry. RM is the one area where managers and MBAstudents are sorely lacking in training and information.H. C. Luk, P.Eng., Senior Engineer, BC Hydro, Canada: This is one of thebest courses I have recently taken and I have enjoyed and learned a great deal inthe three days.Bob Balbirnie, Strategic Maintenance Planner, BC Hydro: This was one ofthe most interesting and stimulating seminars that I have ever attended, truly animpressive presentation by a most engaging presenter. I am honored to havemade your acquaintance and if ever I am stuck on any part of the riskmanagement process I will know who to call. Thanks for a very enjoyable threedays! I found your approach to be extremely fascinating.Appendix 2: List of Selected Publications ©Oboni Riskope Associates Page 7 of 9 Vancouver 16 JAN 2013 Inc. www.riskope.com
