Gas Speak has come full circle, with Anthony Cooper who attended Gas Speak as a delegate ten years ago attending this year as a mentor.
Federal Minister for Resources and Energy Martin Ferguson provided the keynote address to the delegates with a run-down of the current state and expected future of the industry. AGIT Director and Australian Pipeline Industry Association (APIA) Chief Executive Cheryl Cartwright then provided an industry update, explained the objectives, activities and members of the AGIT, and highlighted AGIT’s involvement with the International Gas Union as the Australian Charter member. Ms Cartwright urged the delegates to seize the opportunity being provided by their employers, the industry and AGIT, saying that she wished such a forum had been available in her early career.
On the Monday, Louise Carter from Performance Partnership provided delegates with invaluable advice, comments and tips on presentation skills, overcoming presentation anxiety and on using PowerPoint effectively.
