Oxford, UK (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
GWI’s Business Insight Seminars, building on the success of its Desalination Short School programme (Singapore, Perth, Jeddah, Phoenix and most recently Barcelona in April ’12), will focus on providing GWI’s unique insights into the trends and future prospects within the water markets, looking at new approaches, market understanding and business performance.
“We’ve designed these seminars for engineers, project managers and senior executives who want a business centred, practical approach. Our format is seminar-based, and we have highly experienced hands-on experts providing their essential business insights,” Gina Rowland, Training Manager for GWI, explains. “However, they are much more than a training course - delegates also have a chance to share their own troubleshooting knowledge and skills in Q&A sessions throughout, and each day finishes with an open panel discussion.”
The two-day seminars respond to the need to keep up with rapid change within the water industry – in the environment, the political landscape, regulation, technology and competition. They will be held on 4th & 5th of July 2012 (during Singapore International Water Week - SIWW) at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre, with two initial events to run concurrently:
1. Desalination –Technology and Market Trends will be led by Tom Pankratz, Water Desalination Report editor, and supported by John Tonner, COO of Consolidated Water. Christopher Gasson, GWI’s publisher, will also provide up-to-date market forecasts and competitor analysis for both the industrial and municipal desalination markets. Topics will include:
Desalination Market Dynamics

2. Private Finance for Water Projects led by GWI’s Asia editor, Dr Olivia Jensen, reviews the deal structures and privatisation models that will lead the second wave of public-private-partnerships (PPP) in water.
