We call ourselves the Performance People because we ensure the right support is in place for our customers from conceptual design to after sales care. To enable us to deliver truly end-to-end service to our customers, we’re committed to the professional development of our staff.
With that in mind, I am delighted to reveal that Matthew Walker, Project Engineer at our operation in Australia has been handpicked to join the esteemed Gastech Young Engineer Foundation (GYEF).
Given the growing need to attract young talent to the energy industry, the GYEF recognizes and supports the next generation of engineers. The GYEF’s committee, which represents several leading figures in the global energy industry, selected Matthew as one of just 80 successful candidates from several hundred applicants.
Bolstering the professional development of engineers in the early stages of their career, the GYEF has awarded Matthew access to an exclusive package of educational and networking opportunities. This includes a complementary delegate pass for the 2015 Gastech Conference & Exhibition in Singapore (27th – 30th October 2015), providing the opportunity to connect and network with peers and industry leaders. In addition, Matthew has also been awarded a lifetime membership to Gastech’s Young Engineer Alumni and granted unlimited access to online mentoring from thought leaders through a dedicated section of the GYEF website.
For Matthew to be recognized so enthusiastically at such an early stage in his career is a phenomenal feat. We hold a long-standing commitment to the professional development of our staff, and this is testament to our ability to produce industry ready talent.
