As a company, Tandem’s representatives have been very busy on the event scene during 2019. In some instances, this has afforded us opportunities to contribute to thought leadership in our industry, events have provided continuous professional development opportunities, networking and hiring opportunities and opportunities to expand our current and new business prospects in Ireland, the UK and Europe.
Some highlight events have included the iWish event in Cork, the ISPE Ireland Affiliate Annual Conference and their Disruptive Technology Conference. The Lean Construction Ireland National Conference was future facing and informative, as was the BIM: The Digital Journey Continues event. The Pharma Industry Awards in October were a great way to celebrate achievements in the Pharma industry, which Tandem were very proud to sponsor.
Other highlights included the NISO Annual Health & Safety conference, The Mental Health and Wellbeing Summit, PDA Ireland’s Visual Inspection Seminar, The SCSI’s Planning Insights event and The Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association Inaugural discussion in Cork.
In Europe, Tandem participated in the ISPE Europe Biotech Conference, the Dutch Life Sciences Conference and various trade missions.
Tandem have thoroughly enjoyed getting involved in STEM and STEPS initiatives this year, encouraging younger generations to consider a career in engineering. During the year we have also met many college undergraduates and graduates at careers events that have impressed us with their knowledge, capabilities and drive.
A notable achievement in our events calendar was our participation in the Construction Industry Federation’s Safety Week. Tandem ran a week-long programme of events including guest speakers, demonstrations, videos, Q&As, group discussions to health and safety quizzes and a prize giving. Key topics covered included; Mental Health and Wellbeing in Construction, Working Safely with Electricity, Working Safely at Height, Vehicle Risk & Safety in Lifting Operations and Working Safely with Hazardous Substances.
As part of our events program, Tandem have enjoyed some fundraising activities this year, such as our Run in the Dark and Cups Against Breast Cancer.
We look forward to an eventful calendar for 2020.
