2012 Engineering Leadership Conference
Passing the Baton – Engineering Australia's Future
Are you one of the 400 delegates attending ELC 2012 in Adelaide next week? If not, there is still time to register.
The 2012 Engineering Leadership Conference will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from 30 May to 2 June 2012.
ELC 2012 will offer engineering professionals the opportunity to hear from highly experienced leaders in the profession, as well as develop techniques for improving business and communication skills. This year’s speaker program will address many different aspects of engineering leadership, all linked to the four core issues of Pathways to Leadership, Transitions in Leadership, Leadership in Industry and Engineering a Better Society.
The conference also includes a range of workshops, both before and during the main technical program, covering topics such as presentation skills, business acumen, effective management styles and leadership techniques. Workshops on “Transitioning from Manager to Leader”, “Negotiation Skills” and “Influencing Skills” are proving the most popular, and are almost at capacity.
Key social events, which can be attended as part of, or separate to the conference, include a Welcome Reception, a Business Breakfast with Jay Weatherill, Premier of South Australia, as the keynote speaker, a Gala Dinner and a Young Engineers Networking Event.
Keynote speakers, including the Honourable Tim Fischer AC, a former deputy Prime Minister of Australia, Ian Tyler, Chief Executive of global infrastructure services company Balfour Beatty PLC, and Jillian Kilby, the 2010 Young Professional Engineer of the Year, promise to inspire, sharing experiences and insights on how to become a better leader.
Marita Cheng, an inspiring engineer and the 2012 Young Australian of the Year, will also be speaking about her dedication to encouraging young women to consider a career in engineering.
