On 7th December, WR held its annual Conference, in collaboration with NSAR.


The theme of the conference was “Developing Talent”.


Speakers at the WR Conference which took place in the morning included Bernadette Kelly (Director General, Rail Group, Department for Transport), Shamit Gaiger (Director of Strategy NSAR), Valerie Todd (Talent and Resources Director, Crossrail), Clair Mowbray (Chief Executive, National College for High Speed Rail, HS2) and Nicki Crossland (Managing Director, Qi Performance).


The afternoon part of the conference was led by NSAR and included speeches from Neil Robertson (CEO of NSAR), Anna Delvecchio (Commercial Account Director for Amey Rail and Consulting),  Neil Franklin (Head of the Skills Intelligence Unit for the National Skills Academy for Rail, NSAR) and Richard Postance (Head of Ernst & Young’s Energy & Assets practice).


Over 125 men and women attended the conference and the feedback has been fantastic.
