5 Things to Look Forward to at SPF EMEA

May 28, 2018

SPF EMEA is next week in Paris, and it keeps getting bigger with each passing year. What started as a regional SPF event evolved over the years to become a conference of global scale.

Enablon clients attend SPF conferences to maximize the value that they get out of the Enablon platform, and to learn more about new industry developments, technologies and best practices.

If you’re already registered for SPF EMEA, this post will guide you on what to look for and expect next week. If you have not registered yet, don’t worry, it’s not too late.

2) Customer Innovation Challenge

At this year’s SPF EMEA, we will do something that we have not done at past editions of SPF EMEA, or any SPF for that matter. It’s called the “Customer Innovation Challenge”. During this unique workshop, participating Enablon clients will have a chance to experience the Enablon innovation process, influence the Enablon roadmap, and network with industry peers and Enablon experts. It is a great opportunity to share ideas and learn from others, all while having fun.

3) Focus on Technological Innovations

If you want a glimpse of the future, and how to leverage new and emerging technologies, then an SPF conference is the right place to be. In addition to the Customer Innovation Challenge described above, SPF EMEA also has a dedicated track on technology & innovation. You will learn more about how mobile apps, big data, analytics, artificial intelligence, AR/VR, wearables, blockchain, the IoT, and the Cloud will create opportunities to drive integrated risk management, enable operational excellence, and improve EHS performance. You will also learn how the Enablon platform will leverage new technological innovations to increase value for organizations.

4) Market Knowledge

To be successful in your role, you need to be aware of what’s happening in the market regarding key topics. SPF EMEA will feature sessions with experts who will give you the foresight and insight to be prepared for challenges and opportunities. Examples of such sessions include:

  • Market overview on digital innovations for safe and sustainable operations, presented by David Metcalfe, CEO at Verdantix.
  • Best practices for global EHS regulatory compliance management, presented by Tjeerd Hendel-Blackford, Head of Thought Leadership at Enhesa.
  • Panel discussion on Integrated Risk Management, moderated by Taze Young, Product Manager at Enablon, and featuring Standard Model Partners and Goldcorp.

5) Networking Opportunities & the Enablon Community

Ultimately, SPF conferences are about people. The number one objective of SPF conferences is to increase collective knowledge. Our aim is to make sure that you go back home with new information that will help you improve your workplace, company, industry, and even your local community. To achieve this goal, SPF EMEA sessions encourage the exchange of ideas, knowledge and perspectives where you learn from others. You will meet people who will inspire, enlighten and teach you many things, and you will be surprised how much people will also learn from you!
