As part of the programme we will have an interactive break-out session which will give delegates the opportunity to discuss a key topic of interest to them in a more participative format. Each session will be led by a facilitator who will lead the discussion and encourage maximum debate and sharing of ideas. Topics to be discussed on the day include:

These topics may be subject to alteration and other topics will be added as the programme content develops.

​A. “What does the Next Generation Brownfield Professional Look Like?”  Determining the Right Balance of Skills Required to Work Effectively in a Changing Industry Sector 

Discussing the current skills shortage and ways to tackle it, what skills are needed in the sector now, and how best to manage the increase of digitalisation in the sector and its impact on recruitment, training and development.

B. Effective Communication Skills for Improved Stakeholder & Community Engagement 

C. Developing a Robust & Workable Conceptual Site Model (workshop) 

Identifying all the necessary characteristics of a site including all possible pollutant linkages; sources, pathways and receptors, is crucial to developing a comprehensive CSM. This workshop will look at the latest techniques being used to effectively assess a contaminated site and optimise the process from desk study through to site investigation - risk management - validation. Having confidence in your site investigation enables you to better justify decisions to the regulator and develop a cost- and time-effective remedial strategy. 


D. Delivering the Digital Revolution on the Ground – Innovative Data Collection, Analysis & Management (workshop)

How can we best respond to the challenges of digitalisation and the opportunities presented by new technology? How can new digital innovations help us to achieve cost savings, efficiencies and added-value insights? This workshop will look at some of the latest techniques and their potential to transform the work that we do and the services we can offer.  

E. Project Management Skills for Early Career Brownfield Professionals – Translating On-Site Experience into Effective Project Management

F. Selecting the Most Appropriate Laboratory Analysis for Different Contaminants to Achieve Optimum Cost-Efficiency
