10/11/2015 – The Inaugural PowerHouse2030 Workshop: Giving young leaders of tomorrow a voice to shape the future
• What will 2030 and beyond look like for the electricity sector?
• How can we contribute to solving the huge challenges that the industry faces now and in the future?
• What are the best methods of attracting top talent into the industry?
We believe that the young people in our sector should be given the opportunity to contribute their views on these topics.
The workshop aim was to gather the views and opinions of future leaders with 1-5 years’ experience in the industry to create tangible, actionable thought leadership on the future of energy and the challenges young professionals will face. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to network with some of the top young industry talent and the chance to develop career-long relationships.
