The voice of the energy industry

What's to come from the YEP Forum?

Midsummer will mark the high point of the Young Energy Professional Year when the first ever YEP Forum awards evening heads – on 30 June 2015 -  to Vinopolis on the Capital’s South Bank. So, the winners don’t have long to wait now as entries, showcasing the best in upcoming energy talent from all over the UK, are coming in to Energy UK’s central London offices right now.  Anyone working in the energy industry for less than ten years can enter in categories that include leadership, innovation, customer focus, rising star and YEP of the year. 

But the evening isn’t just about the winners. Even if you aren’t entering the competition for an award why not come along and join the fun. If current turn out at the meetings and events is anything to go by it’s sure to be one of the hottest tickets in town. There will be plenty of time to meet and greet friends and professionals from up and down the country over an excellent three course dinner and drinks. 

But we’re not there yet. The Forum has other events planned and on 21 May 2015  the next outing is an exciting visit north of the Border with SSE as the hosts in Glasgow. The evening’s topical post-election debate will discuss, ‘How is energy policy affecting the energy industry?’.  It’s hardly giving the dust time to settle on the general election on 7 May but, with politics sure still to be in the public eye, there couldn't be a better time to consider how the various permutation of parties and policies will affect us all.

The YEP Forum is fast becoming the place for the next generation of energy industry professionals to meet and share their knowledge and experiences. . It is, above all else, a place to meet and network and sSince the first YEP forum almost two years ago, it has gone from strength to strength. The quarterly events attract large audiences and events range from site visits to hotly contested debates as well as opportunities to hear from current industry leaders themselves.

The YEP Forum helps bring people together and overcomes the view the energy industry is a club of aging, grey guys – just like your Dad. While it is true that companies tend to hang on to talented staff in a way many other sectors envy, the Forum help people new to the industry create a vibrant network of their own, helping build strong relationships, opportunities to learn from your peers and –like the awards – underpinning best practice across the industry.

The YEP forum is the place to be, to learn, to network. So, why not join and get involved today?
