IEMA members have the opportunity to get a one-to-one professional development session at a leading industry event taking place in London this month.

The Institute is a key partner in delivering the Energy & Environment Expo at the ExCel on 17–19 June. Throughout this free event, IEMA will be holding professional development surgery sessions where members can discuss their training, learning and development options with the Institute’s professional development adviser, Dipvandana Mehta.

So, if you need advice on getting the right training or upgrading your membership, be sure to visit IEMA’s stand – number O1750 – at ExCel, during the three-day event.

As well as the opportunity to receive advice, Expo delegates will have the chance to hear from several IEMA representatives on key environmental skills and policy. These sessions are:

  • A keynote by chief executive Tim Balcon at 10.30am in the Energy & Environment Theatre on 17 June. He will address the issue of “skills for a sustainable economy”.
  • At 2.25pm on 17 June, IEMA executive director Martin Baxter will present details of the revised ISO 14001 standard in a session entitled “Environment and sustainability leading the way”.
  • On day two, Nick Blyth, IEMA practice and policy lead, will speak at 11.55am about member views on climate change and energy policy. He will also unveil IEMA’s new climate change position statement (see pp.14–18).
  • At 11.10am on 19 June, Josh Fothergill will present a session entitled “From waste to resources” in which he will introduce IEMA’s special report on resource management.
