Black & Veatch and SIWW host water workshop

Black & Veatch and Singapore International Water Week (SIWW) are to host an interactive workshop at the event at this year’s Water Leaders Summit at SIWW 2011.

The Water pressures – how to adapt and lead in a changing urban environment workshop, open to Water Leaders Summit delegates, focuses on managing future challenges related to changing urban environments. It forms part of Black & Veatch’s series and takes place at 10.50 am on Wednesday 6 July.

The workshop includes three short roundtable discussions of best practices for dealing with challenges in a changing urban environment. The three topics will be innovation pressures, policy pressures and public pressures.

There will also be 27 roundtable discussions during which delegates can share insights and best practices. The findings will be used to form a white paper that will articulate the sector’s most current and pressing challenges, and will be made available to the public later this year.

Black & Veatch will also be involved in other aspects of SIWW, which takes place from 4-8 July in Suntec, Singapore. Len Rodman, Black & Veatch chairman, president and CEO, will chair the Middle East & North Africa Business Forum on 7 July, while Dan McCarthy, president and CEO of Black & Veatch’s global water business, will be a panellist in the Australia Business Forum on 1 July for the second year running. Black & Veatch water/wastewater technology leaders presenting at the water convention include Cindy Wallis-Lage, senior vice president and executive managing director of technical solutions, Black & Veatch and Bob Hulsey, director of water treatment technology, Black & Veatch. There will also be a number of Black & Veatch technical posters from leaders throughout the company’s global network presented at the event.
