SPONSORS OF REGIONAL FOCUS


AFTERNOON SPEAKERS


• Sam Pick – Business Development Manager at Renewables Network kicked us off on the right note and gave us a very short presentation on winning work in the renewables industry and then introduced a surprise visitor and subsequent speaker!


• Lord John Prescott – main contributor and negotiator to the Kyoto treaty and agreement when in office, who is still involved on a global basis with developments in the reduction of carbon emissions, gave a passionate and personal presentation championing the area and commented “the Humber area has everything which it needs to develop this exciting renewable energy industry, but only you can make it happen”


• Kurt Christensen – Managing Director of Wind Power Support like Winston gave a very interesting presentation on his experiences of a rapidly growing vessel operating business in winning work in offshore wind


• Alan Maggs – Business Manager, The Hyde Group (Northern Sites) then explained the growing importance and need for collaboration from the perspective of an engineering & fabrication business


• Peter Brady – Head of KMS Energy relayed information on their expansion into the solar energy market


• Darren Taylor – Business Development Renewables for the MTL Group gave us MTL’s experiences of a regional company winning work in Europe within the offshore wind industry


Another Q & A session, where all the afternoon speakers were involved, proved lively, informative and positive


There were many speakers involved throughout the day but the format proved to be very successful – short punchy presentations covering wide experiences from people who have actually been there was refreshing. Even more importantly it gave those present some real life case studies on which to base their aims and aspirations in the wind energy industry.
