The Centre for Engineering Leadership and Management and Young Engineers Australia present the 2012 Engineering Leadership Conference (ELC 2012) in Adelaide.

Now is the time to get your tickets to the biggest event on the Australian engineering calendar. ELC 2012 is fast approaching, and your chance to take advantage of early bird registration ends in seven days.

This year’s ELC is a must attend for anyone with a vested interest in the engineering profession’s future. Tackling the big issues effecting engineering in Australia, a host of the country’s most respected engineering minds will share their thoughts on where the future of our profession lies.

Passing the Baton – Engineering Australia’s Future is this year’s theme, exploring the profession’s direction through a series of dynamic and thought-provoking speakers and presentations.

The keynote address at ELC 2012 will be delivered by former Australian Deputy Prime Minister, the Honourable Tim Fischer. Mr Fischer has held a lifelong interest in engineering, stemming from a dedicated passion for rail systems. Speaking from the perspective of regional Australia, Mr Fischer will share his thoughts on the challenges faced by those areas and the role the engineering community will play in rising to meet them”.

“A bright economic future for regional Australia can only be achieved by ensuring growth across a multitude of sectors. Engineers have a pivotal role to play in making sure our smaller towns and cities keep pace with the main centres,” said Tim Fischer.

Joining Mr Fischer in speaking at ELC 2012 is Ian Tyler, who is chief executive of international infrastructure services company Balfour Beatty Plc, parent company of Parsons Brinckerhoff. Based in Great Britain, with overall responsonsibility for a global business spanning 80 countries, Mr Tyler will draw on years of experience working on major global projects, discussing how challenges faced throughout the world are impacting the engineering sector.

“While the world battles its way through a time of record economic uncertainty, now more than ever the engineering profession needs to lead the way through innovation and smart business decisions”.

The four day event will include a series of workshops, high profile speakers, poster presentation opportunities and a networking event at the Adelaide Oval.

“ELC 2012 is about bringing together engineers from all corners of Australia and the Asia Pacific Region to discuss, debate and share ideas about the future of the engineering profession. ELC 2012 will not only arm you with the most current perspective on the engineering landscape, it will also provide an exceptional networking opportunity,” said CEO of Engineers Australia, Stephen Durkin.
