If you think that government seminars and other events are for local and national government only, then perhaps you should view the forthcoming events which fall under this umbrella on our website. Government and empowerment affect everyone, and the seminars and conferences scheduled for this year prove this point. Thee are obvious fields that fall into this category such as defence and radio communications, but there are events around the subjects of managing hospital waste, renewable energy, urban transport and military flight training, to name but a few.
As renewable energy concerns all of us, everyone should be aware of what new developments there are in this crucial field. Urban transport affects commuters and residents of urban areas as well as city and municipal planners. Attending an international event gives participants other perspectives on the problems they face in their locale.
The world renowned experts who conduct seminars and give papers are well worth listening to even if you don’t agree with them. Events such as seminars give you an opportunity to question the experts and talk with professionals like you who have been working on the same types of projects and problems but from different angles. Much is learned by talking informally with participants at these events and perhaps you will gain more insights in this way than from the formal event itself. However, if you don’t attend these events, you restrict your networking abilities. Although communications have never been easier with the use of new technologies, there is nothing better than meeting face to face and being recognized if you need to contact the people you met at an event in the future. Given the rise in numbers using social networking sites, you will undoubtedly have realized the importance of networking.
If you attend conferences in your field regularly and are job-hunting, these events are excellent ways of finding a new position. When people recognize you and know what you are doing, they will be more inclined to think of you as a potential member of their team. If you wish to advertise yourself and your talents, then what better forum could there be than an international seminar or conference?
The beauty of conferences and seminars is that there is such a great mix of different ideas and solutions to common problems. For example if you are in the field of waste management, then meeting someone who pioneered what was at the time a new concept of waste disposal from Singapore, it could really change your way of thinking. You will meet people with innovative ideas, and be able to talk with them about the pitfalls and benefits of their projects. If you know the downsides of your undertaking, then you will see the wisdom of that old saying, “Fore-warned is fore-armed.”
