European Steam Turbine Users Conference. 1-2 November 2017, Birmingham, UK.

I am delighted to be chairing and speaking at the European Steam Turbine Users Conference in Birmingham in November.

The conference will give the opportunity to review case studies, get up to date on the latest thinking and learn how good engineering can be supported by other disciplines.  It is also a great chance to network with people in the same field.


The pre-conference workshop will look at how managing human behaviour can support a successful steam turbine outage.  We will take a practical look at consequence management and consider tools for introducing this to outages.

Simon Walker will take us through his experience of rolling out a global contractor management program to optimise the effectiveness of contractors during outages and day-to-day operations.

The workshop will finish off with a practical demonstration of human behavioural science; showing the group just how powerful a little understanding of human behaviour can be.

Follow the link at the top of the page to register for this event.  The presenters and attendees are all experienced in the maintenance and operation of steam turbines and associated plant.  This conference also provides a good link between traditional engineering management and the science of human behaviour.
