Keynote speaker Martin Baggs, Former CE, Thames Water, promises his most open and honest comments on the industry. 

Earlier this year British Water, Future Water Association and Water Industry Forum collectively ran a survey which sought to obtain industry views on what are the biggest challenges facing the water sector and what these three associations should be doing to secure the future for the sector.

The results from the survey will now form the basis of this major water sector conference & workshop, jointly organised by British Water, Future Water Association and the Water Industry Forum.

The conference will bring together representatives from across the water industry to establish an understanding of the needs of the sector and the issues holding the sector back. This will form a prioritised statement for government and the industry that is truly reflective of the challenges faced.  It will also identify ways in which British WaterFuture Water Association and Water Industry Forum can work together with the sector to help to tackle the challenges and set the future agenda.

Expert speakers will introduce each of the main areas of focus and participate in round table workshop sessions throughout the day on:

  • Infrastructure hosted by, Trevor Bishop, Environment Agency
  • Water users hosted by, Hannah Bradley, The Consumer Council for Water
  • Skills hosted by, Nick Ellins, EU Skills  
  • Translation of R&D hosted by, Hans Jensen, UKWIR
  • Innovation hosted by, Liz Parminter, PA Consulting 
  • Learning from other sectors hosted by, Tony Green, Utilities & Infrastructure DNV GL

The Future of the UK Water Sector is a key opportunity to help identify and raise awareness of gaps in the industry, shape your working environment and future advancements in the sector, as well as network and build strong working relationships with like-minded experts.
