Rocking the risk with the bagpipes.

The tranquil surroundings of Edinburgh Castle provided a genteel setting for the drinks reception at this year’s Airmic conference.

That was until Scottish rock band the Red Hot Chilli Pipers – yes, that’s Pipers – hit the stage and got the delegates rocking to some classic beats.

A good time was had by all, but Backchat wonders whether any risk managers calculated the risks caused by the gale force winds that tormented the crowd.

Particularly those relating to men wearing kilts.
