Institute of Water Annual Conference 2019

“Disrupt or be Disrupted” – How Disruption is Transforming the Water Sector

Hosted by Sara Venning, Institute of Water President Elect and Chief Executive Officer of Northern Ireland Water.

Esteemed business expert Sir John Parker will lead us into the conference, considering how the demands of the water industry are constantly evolving and how this conference aims to take a glance into the future to see how technological advances can improve our responses and bring benefits to our customers, as well as environmental considerations.

Disruption is taking centre stage across the industry and globally renowned leading disruption expert and motivational speaker Leo Johnson from PwC will help us consider the transformation that is taking place with emerging digital technologies and business models. These innovative new technologies and models including robotics and automations will undoubtedly benefit our businesses and change the shape of future customer services.

The conference will explore disruption to the environment and the role of plastics within the water company. Technology expert and entrepreneur Oliver Rees will take us through the changing nature of the workplace and we’ll consider the importance of reputation within our organisations and how we can attract the best talent in the sector.

Energy & Utility Skills Chief Executive, Nick Ellins, will be speaking at this year’s event on a panel discussion around talent acquisition and retention.
