THE SPEAKERS It is always difficult to single out any of the speakers to give greater coverage of their presentations as all were particularly informative and professional. However, Sam Pick and the work of the Team Humber Marine Alliance deserves particular mention and is featured elsewhere within this issue.


Two speakers not on the conference schedule were seconded on the day by the Chairman to give additional presentations because of the interest shown in their particular areas of expertise. They were Martin Willis the Harbourmaster for Scarborough and Whitby and Anne Hornigold who is CEO for Whitby Fishing School who also feature in interviews within this publication.


Closing remarks were covered by the Chairman who handled question time extremely well, although there seemed to be only positive reaction and feedback, thus backing up our observations of almost 100% support for the industry and its commitment in the area.


It is always refreshing to experience short, to the point presentations, and this conference was no exception. Two vibrant presenters sharing a speaking slot also held people’s attention. All the speakers were in tune with each other too, which gave the whole day a feeling of coherence and helped to keep the audience focussed.


All in all, we experienced a very varied, informative and professionally organised and managed event which bodes very well for the future of the offshore wind energy industry in this area of the country.
