The conference begins with an opening keynote from Jon Rathjen, water industry team leader at the Scottish Government, before moving into an analysis of investment priorities from Alan Sutherland, chief executive officer at WICS, and the future of the customer experience with Fiona Templeton, customer experience manager, and Elise Cartmell, chief scientist, both at Scottish Water.
Other individuals speaking on the day include: Peter Peacock, chair of The Customer Forum, and also former minister and cabinet secretary in the Scottish Parliament; Simon Parsons, director of strategic customer service planning, Scottish Water; David Pirie, executive director, SEPA, Bill Byers, drinking water specialist, Drinking Water Quality Regulator for Scotland; Donald MacBrayne, business development manager, Scottish Water Horizons; Paul Dodd, BIM programme lead, Scottish Futures Trust; and Rob Mustard, director of digital, Scottish Water.
