Create Your Own Certainty - including Legal Update

Location: Oakley Suite, Wyboston Lakes Training Centre, Wyboston

Date: 18 October 2017
Time: 09.30 to 17.00

This year's environmental law update session will form part of a larger event hosted by GBN members Energise Ltd. The one-day seminar is free of charge, and the focus is on equipping you with the tools to create your own certainty within an ever-changing energy and carbon world. The expert panel and interactive workshops will enable you to benefit from shared knowledge and expertise. The speakers bring with them a wealth of experience and seek to create a collaborative environment to enable solutions and inspire discussions about the common issues we each face day to day.The panel had been tailored to cover topics which will affect both the present and future of your energy and carbon focused world, which we believe will come increasingly into focus as our global environment shifts and new technologies and innovations come to market. Simon Alsbury, Energise’s Managing Director (who has spoken at several GBN events), is always looking to the future of the energy and carbon landscape and what impact that will have on businesses. Simon is joined by Rob Ford and Jack Waring, two of Energise’s leading consultants, who come with innovative ideas you can implement, detailed insight into the ISO 50001 in industry. Energise is delighted to add to the panel guest speakers from the Environment Agency, Jeremy Hay, who will be providing you with insight into environmental legislation, and John Field, Immediate Past President at CIBSE, who will be reviewing how we can all improve our energy performance. You will also have the opportunity to pose questions to each of our panelists during our networking sessions and over lunch. The remainder of the Energise team will also be on hand all day, each of whom are looking forward to sharing their knowledge, expertise and ideas with you.The day will also include details of exciting new innovations that Energise has been working on to enable, inspire and deliver change. If you only want to attend the Legal Update session, please contact GBN directly so that we can advise Energise that this is the case. The conference is free of charge and includes complimentary food and drink throughout the day.To book a place, please follow this link to the Energise event website:
