Professional Seminar and Networking

The aim of this Professional Seminar & Networking Activity is sharing with different professionals about how the engineering industry and risk management capabilities can help companies to make informed decisions, and consequently, enhance the business potential of the Humber Region.

Engineering and Risk

Key Speaker - Phil Glover

Business Development Manager at Humber Local Enterprise Partnership (Humber LEP) with extensive experience in developing and applying economic development strategy coupled with hands-on experience in securing and supporting inward investment projects into the United Kingdom.


Whilst engineering is a combination of art and science, applying  practical knowledge into any economic activity (i.e. construction, finance, innovation, design, process, manufacture, logistics, energy, systems, technology, and so forth), Risk management also combines these aspects to identify and quantify unknown events and measure their impacts on engineering decisions by minimising threats and maximising opportunities.

Given current financial and non-financial constraints the Humber region, companies and professionals need to know, more than ever, how to maximise their opportunities in energy, oil and gas, manufacturing, technology, logistics, heavy industry, agriculture, and so on. For this reason, companies require not only optimizing engineering capabilities, skills and know-how, but also integrating these aspects into the culture of risk management to make informed decisions.

Engineers, at any managerial level, take actions and make decisions (operational, technical, and financial) under complex and uncertain environments. This uncertainty and complexity affect, at company-level, the chances of maximising the asset utilization to achieve the expected production, sales targets, and profitability, but also at industry-level, the growth and sustainability of the Humber region.
