AGS Annual Conference 2022 – An inspiring event all round

Tags: Featured

On the 6th July, we were delighted to hold the AGS Annual Conference 2022, on the first day of Geotechnica. Over 86 industry professionals from across the UK attended the Annual Conference and were welcomed to the Warwickshire Event Centre near Leamington Spa for a full day of networking and expert presentations.

The conference saw Dave Petley discuss landscapes and climate change, Steve Wilson explore good practice for risk assessment for coal mine gas emissions, and Dr Basil Ogunmakin speak on ground improvement.

An important presentation from Vicky Gutteridge from The Ollie Foundation reminded attendees of the importance of checking in on the mental health of yourself and your colleagues, with those in the construction sector particularly at risk.

We were also joined by Paul Roberts, who discussed UK initiatives to arrest the decline in students taking on Geoscience degrees, and Paul Eaves, who spoke through the application of ALARP principals to the management of Geotechnical assets.

It was an inspiring day all round and a great opportunity for people to get together, learn, and enjoy the exhibition space. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
