After much anticipation, almost 300 engineers, scientists, consultants, and other professionals from across the country gathered recently for the annual Douglas Partners Technical Seminar.
The event, now in its 35th year, is a celebration of science and engineering, and importantly the strong culture of learning and development that exists at Douglas Partners.
For many, however, the Technical Seminar is fertile ground where new relationships with colleagues, both socially and professionally, form. It reinforces how communication, teamwork, and trust are the essential ingredients to shared success – which is why the chosen theme for this year was Making Connections.
This theme came to life in many ways: connecting with colleagues, connecting to our shared vision, and connecting to the future we are building together.
Championing the wealth of experience and technical expertise that exists across our 20 branches nationally, an impressive 40+ presentations were delivered on a range of topics and disciplines. This was supported by poster submissions and interactive booths that showcased emerging technologies, smart tools, and capabilities.
Acknowledging individual excellence, key promotions and awards were announced, including the recipient of the coveted Don Douglas Award. The winner of this award (named after the founder of Douglas Partners) can choose to attend a relevant international or Australian conference, with registration, flights and accommodation covered for themself and a guest.
