I&C Consultant Conference 2016

Last week we hosted the Haven Power I&C Consultant Conference 2016 at Drayton Manor Hotel near Tamworth. The event was chaired by the Editor and Co-founder of Energy Live News, Sumit Bose and featured special guest speaker Olympic Gold medallist Sally Gunnell. The event was our best- attended conference to date with 100 consultants in attendance on the day.

We heard from leading industry experts throughout the day as well as staff from Haven and Drax, all giving presentations on their areas of expertise. Speakers included:

  • Matt Willey, Head of Public Affairs, Drax
  • Daniel Starman, Consultant, Cornwall Energy
  • Antony Badger, Commercial Director, Haven Power
  • Jean-Francois Muse, Commercial Director, Drax
  • Richard Robey, Sales and Marketing Director, Haven Power
  • Carolyn Alder, I&C TPI Strategic Relationship Manager, Haven Power

The day covered a range of topics including updates for consultants on Third Party Charges, the energy market, biomass and regulation. It also featured a panel discussion on the cost and effect of regulation and the audience had the opportunity to put questions forward to the panellists. This was a great opportunity for consultants to talk to the panel about topics that mattered to them and some interesting debates ensued.

Guest speaker Sally Gunnell held an inspiring talk on what it takes to be successful and how you can motivate yourself to meet your goals each and every day. Sally brought her Olympic Gold medal with her and passed it around the audience, with many of the attendees taking the opportunity to get a photo with Sally and her medal.

If you missed the conference, don’t worry – we will be sure to host another next year and your account manager will be in touch with you nearer the time with an invitation.
