Thousands of people from around the world tuned in to NEBOSH’s first online conference earlier this month.
As leaders in the field of health and safety education, NEBOSH wanted to offer a conference that was all about sharing expertise and supporting ongoing learning for the profession.
The day kicked-off with a panel discussion on risk management. Callum Irvine, Global Vice President of Safety & Security for IHG Hotels & Resorts, Neeraj Shah, Group Director – EHS, Johnson Matthey and Richard Byrne, Group Director – HSE and Fleet, Travis Perkins shared excellent advice and insights from the risk profession.
The following sessions – all under the conference theme of ‘resilience’ – covered leadership, careers, human and organisational factors and mental health and wellbeing. There was also a mini mindfulness session during the midday break where delegates joined a short guided meditation. Speakers included experts from Health and Safety Executive, Travis Perkins, Johnson Matthey, Kier Highways, Cambridge Assessment and the Filipino International League of Safety Advocates, plus many more.
Dedicated virtual networking at the beginning and end of the day also enabled delegates to connect with fellow professionals from around the world, and share their own experiences and best practice.
