Our training and career coaching services help young graduates and professionals bridge the skills gap between university studies and the requirements of practical political risk assessment for business.
Many advanced students of political science, international relations, sociology, area studies and foreign languages are interested in joining political risk consultancies or in-house teams with similar functions. We help them understand the industry, hone their skills and improve their chances of submitting successful job applications in this broad field. We offer two formats:
Group seminars in London
Tailored one-to-one coaching packages

Dr Carlo Gallo, Founder and director of Enquirisk, regularly delivers lectures and workshop on political rIsk analysis at leading UK universities or via independent events.
"Dr Gallo's presentation provided an excellent overview of the key components of political risk analysis, how it is conducted and - of particular interest to our Master's students - what to do to become a political risk analyst. The interactive element of the presentation and the use of the topical example of Ukraine were particularly successful at engaging the audience."
- Dr Richard Mole, Senior Lecturer, School of Slavonic & East European Studies, UCL (Feb 2014)
"Dr. Gallo's presentation was meticulous and thorough. It provided a solid overview of the field of political risk and there was hardly a minute that went by without me learning something new."

Informative, well structured and enjoyed the active participation which helped to break up the lecture and keep myself stimulated."
- Frazer Reid, investor (April 2017)
"Very clear and coherent presentation; I had no previous knowledge about political risk assessment, I now have a good understanding about what it entails and requires and about the sector providing consultancy in this field. Mr. Gallo is an eloquent speaker and very pleasant to listen to."
- Roos Bollen, Post-Graduate Student, MSc Conflict Studies, London School of Economics (Nov 2013)

"Absolutely great: informative, useful and practical. The presentation is analytical and well chosen. A very good investment of my time. Made me think about political risk in a more structured and informed way. Gave me useful leads for the industry. The instructor is very likeable and the setting and the time are well chosen. Stimulating: I came away with a lot of new ideas. Would recommend it to anybody with an interest in the industry."
