Initiate! 2016

"The end of business as usual"

By embracing the changes that lie ahead and harnessing a culture of innovation to foster a better world, we can start to make an impact and achieve a sustainable energy future. We as an industry need to take this shift seriously and prepare ourselves accordingly.

The Initiate! Programme contributes by serving as a platform that will provide bright minds the opportunity to share their ideas and innovations with the more established professionals in the industry, in an effort to help the industry to reinvent itself with the consumer in mind.
