Throughout the event we’ve a wealth of experienced speakers sharing insight into various aspects of the sector. One question that affects us all - how will Brexit effect the Nuclear Industry? Ian Truman, part of the Nuclear Association Brexit Working Group, will share his specialised knowledge on this topic.

David Eccles of EDF energy will talk about the Hinkley Point C’s project. As the man in the middle of it all, David’s experience with the various stakeholders of the project should provide scintillating information on the different aspects of the project. A military man of over thirty years, you can guarantee he will deliver a succinct overview!

To continue discussing Hinkley Point C, Nick Golding will take the stand to talk about the supply chain programme. Nick has a background in various blue chip companies in the aerospace and marine industries giving him a wealth of knowledge on improving individual and company supply chains. We’re sure this will leave you with plenty to chat about over coffee in the short refreshment break or during the lunch provided.

We’re still confirming the full list of speakers so watch this space for more information as the event draws nearer, hopefully we’ve already caught your interest!
