Any feedback from last years Summit?

Last years summit was all about sharing the mutual experience of a placement in the power industry and then coming together to build knowledge, networks and understanding benefits not only the students, but industry in providing a community of like-minded professionals who will continue on and develop in the business.

The Summit outcomes were:

  1. Practical experience that embeds theoretical learning

  2. Inspiring further learning when returning to university.

  3. An understanding on their career decisions – do I feel included and inspired (or not)

  4. Tangible ‘future self’ visions.

  5. Foundations built for future professional behaviors and cultures.

The 2021 Students in Power Summit assisted in all five aspects and both students and industry left the summit with knowledge to better improve their experiences for future and inspired to take their power careers to the next level.

We look forward to seeing you online this year!
