Welcome Letter from the Conference Chair, Sian Lloyd – Rees, Aker Solutions

‘Accelerating to a New Energy Norm’

Digital tools have altered the way we live and work. This technological transformation has been underway for some years in our industry and has afforded many opportunities to change, adapt, survive and grow.

But the drive for higher performance continues and indeed needs to accelerate, the challenging oil price environment and energy transition being just two reasons, particularly when we see how other industries which moved faster and earlier to adopt digital technologies are benefiting from the investment.

So ENGenious this year will put a particular focus on:

  • Showcasing how other industries are achieving business success with digital technologies and new ways of working, enabling us to accelerate our own learning and uptake
  • Practical and collaborative sessions using the broad range of digital tools and platforms our workforce can access today, driving us all towards new ways of working. Navigating the path towards equipping our current workforce with high quality digital skills and attracting the workforce of the future.
  • Highlighting the technology solutions which exist today and continue to be developed for energy specific application in an industry with a long history of innovation.
  • Methodologies for implementing data driven change in terms of scaling, systems thinking, change management and computer power.

This conference will also focus on how the digital agenda is intertwined with other aspects influencing our future direction as an industry: the move to a low carbon economy, the energy transition, accountability and sustainability. In short living in a world where change is the new ‘norm’.

Understanding the challenge and driving higher performance is second nature in our industry. Together with the Executive and Programme Committees, we want to ensure that all who attend the conference will leave armed with the tools, knowledge and methodologies available to shape the next stage of our future.

I encourage you and your colleagues to attend and we look forward to seeing you in September.
