Testimonials

“The Risk Management Best Practice program provides institutionally-specific feedback allowing our University Recreation department to prioritize areas for improvement to enhance the safety and well-being of our participants.  The thorough analysis by areas of operations provides our staff tangible information to determine our next steps and most effective course of action.  This feedback would take much longer and be less objective if we attempted to undertake the reviews on our own. The comparative data is good for learning trends in best practices of other institutions.”

“The Best Practices survey has provided valuable feedback to our program directors as it provided current comparison data from other campus recreation programs. This tool has allowed us to better understand the strengths and weakness of our department risk management program.”

“This tool will serve as an invaluable, annual process for our department to ensure we’re benchmarking against national best practices in all programming, facility, and service areas that forces us to critically examine everything we do through a comprehensive risk management lens.  This is a ground-breaking moment in the field of campus recreation.”

“In July of 2015 California State University, Chico had the opportunity to participate in Sport Risk’s new ‘Best Practices’ risk management review conducted by Ian McGregor & Associates. Ian is clearly one of the most knowledgeable and experienced leaders in risk management practices and our institution was excited to be one of the first Universities to use this new evaluation process. 

 While evaluating our programs we found his work to be innovative, comprehensive, and easy to use throughout all aspects of our various recreation programs. Because of his outstanding work we are using the recommendations as a catalyst for program improvement.  Being able to contrast our practices with other NIRSA institutions is invaluable in bringing our programs to a higher standard of excellence. Without hesitation, I would recommend this process to any collegiate recreation program who is interested in current, state of the art, risk management practices. You will find Ian McGregor and Associates to be professional and cost effective in helping you meet your administrative responsibilities.”

Working with McGregor & Associates allowed our staff to come together and learn how to communicate with each other about risk management issues… it was an outstanding team-building and/or learning environment for everyone. Our entire professional staff participated in the process and was divided into “working committees” to facilitate the collection of materials and develop common, department-wide, policies and risk management procedures.

As a result of working with McGregor & Associates, our Department has a well defined, and operational, Risk Management Manual, that incorporates its entire set of programs and services…. this is an active and fluid document that will continue to be updated and reviewed on a regular basis. In addition, as a result of this process, the department has established a department-wide Risk Management Committee that is responsible to monitor and manage the various risk-related issues associated with our programs and services. This committee will meet on a regular basis, communicate with the university’s Risk Management Services and will continue to oversee the management of our organization’s risk related needs.
