Emma Welsh introduces the first business insight seminar from GWI.
I’ve been reading a lot of resumés recently, and people are very keen on telling me now much training they have undertaken during the course of their careers. One person, not content with listing her GSEs, A-levels, degree and masters, decided to list each and every one of the in-house training courses she’d attended over the past five years. This may have been overkill, but she obviously felt that it was important – and she wasn’t alone. It’s certainly true that you do need to keep learning to maintain your drive and inspiration in the workplace and your competitive edge in the job market.
In the water industry, there are some very practical reasons to learn from experts with a wealth of experience that you simply can’t gain on your own. Understanding the new approaches which will determine success in the water business today is a vital building block in growing your business. The first GWI business insight seminar, which we are running during Singapore International Water Week, offers you more than just training – it is an exclusive professional seminar which will sharpen your competitive instincts. It is only with privileged access to the market data and insight generated by Global Water Intelligence that you can dig deeper into future trends and prospects, discovering new markets and opportunities. Add to that course leaders who have an unparalleled knowledge of their area, and you have a winning combination.
On 4th and 5th July we are running Desalination – Technology and Market Trends, The course is led by Water Desalination Report editor Tom Pankratz and supported by Consolidated Water COO John Tonner and GWI publisher Christopher Gasson. The desalination market is evolving rapidly as competition in the sector intensifies. This two-day seminar will keep you ahead of the crowd and enable you to understand the direction in which your company should be moving. We review new technologies in development, examine the emerging desalination needs of the energy and mining industries, and present case studies showing the latest innovations in practice. We will also provide up-to-date market forecasts and competitor analysis for both the industrial and municipal desalination markets.
Tom will be available throughout both days to answer all those tricky questions that you’ve been longing to ask: Is it really possible to desalinate seawater for less than $1.00/m3? How feasible is it to double the capacity of an operating desal plant? How would you design an SWRO plant if electricity costs were five times higher at night? Which intake and outfall solutions are considered best available technology?
There will be a visit to the Sing- Spring desalination facility on the afternoon of the second day, where you can see cutting-edge techniques in action. This course is ideal for contractors, consultants, offtakers, water utilities, suppliers, O&M staff and researchers. Anyone who has an interest in desal and is responsible for business development will find this course invaluable.
