SPE YP London launches

exciting programme of events As SPE review went to print, SPE YP London Committee was about to launch its 2013/14 programme with its second annual ‘Introduction to Management Consulting in Oil & Gas’ event, organised in partnership with Boston Consulting Group (26 September). Hosted by the BCG Energy Practice, the interactive, informative event is designed to highlight the work of management consultants in the industry and take participants through real-life case studies of consulting assignments.

Following a highly successful event in 2012, this year’s House of Commons visit (8 October) takes the theme ‘Will Unconventionals be a necessary conventional choice?’, and will once again be hosted by YP London, in association with their colleagues at PESGB.

On 10 October, the Committee will launch a new event - the SPE London Student Paper Contest, in which students from Imperial College London and the Universities of Manchester, Leeds and Coventry will present their final year projects in a typical evening dinner meeting setting. The winner will automatically be entered into the European Paper Contest. SPE members at all levels are encouraged to come along to support the future young professionals and learn about cutting-edge research into solving industry-relevant problems.

SPE YP London Committee Chair Nurzhan Kairbayev says: “We have a very exciting programme lined up for the coming year, full of interesting technical and social events. We also have several events planned specifically for students. We encourage our members to play an active part and to keep an eye on our web and LinkedIn pages for future updates.” SPE CONSULTANTS LISTING
