Second Event in British Water’s Women in Water Series, Manchester, UK

16 October 2019

“Be your authentic self” – message to women working in water

Turner & Townsend director Tania Flasck shares insights and advice from her own experience ahead of British Water’s Women in Water event

Just 20% of the workforce in the UK water industry is female* – an imbalance the sector is working hard to correct. British Water is leading the way with its second Women in Water event, taking place in Manchester in October.

Tania Flasck, director and head of UK infrastructure at Turner & Townsend, the global professional services consultancy, will be among the speakers. Turner & Townsend is also event sponsor. With over 25 years’ water and utilities experience, Tania is passionate about supporting women in the sector. Here, she shares some insights and tells us why Women in Water is so important.

Why do we need events like Women in Water?
Events like this are hugely important because they provide a safe forum for women to be open about challenges, share their experiences and learn from others. They also provide an opportunity to make good connections, seek out support and grow your network. All of this is valuable for personal development and building confidence.

What do you hope the event will achieve?
I’m expecting some really positive outcomes. We’ll be sharing stories and insights and people should come away with some tools to help them manage their career and balance multiple demands. The previous event was very well received, and this will build on that. We’ve looked at the feedback and requests from the earlier event and will be drilling into some specific topics, such as career goals and confidence building.

What can we expect from the presentations and workshops?
All the speakers are aiming to make the event hands-on and engaging. The day won’t just be one-way dialogue, it will be mainly workshop-style, so fast-paced and hopefully fun. We’ve got a lot to pack in. We’ll all be talking candidly about our experiences and learning and sharing. Inevitably, there will be some great connections made, as there were last time.

What advice would you give women about to enter the water industry?
I’ve got three bits of advice:
Don’t try and be something you’re not – be your authentic self. Leverage your strengths and focus on what you can do well. Don’t dwell on your weaknesses.
Take pride in what you do. Water is a really amazing sector; it truly sustains life. You’ll be making a real difference and I’ve found being part of that so satisfying.
Be open to new challenges. You might automatically think you can’t do something, when you actually can. I see this a lot in people. If you have an opportunity presented to you, always consider it and try to take it. You will always get help and support along the way. Don’t be afraid.

And what would you say to women who don’t feel they’re getting the right career support?
One of the most common things I see is people not asking for help, not reaching out to others. Talk to someone you trust and tell them about the situation, to get an objective view. It’s easy to jump to assumptions about people’s intent but this is often misplaced, so a fresh perspective can be important. If you still don’t feel supported, think through your options, talk these through, create some space to think – clear your mind by going for a walk or doing something different. Think how you can turn the situation around. Think carefully and don’t jump to conclusions or make snap decisions. Nine times out of 10, the real issue is communication, or a lack of. Positive intent is normally there.

What is being done to address the gender imbalance in the water industry?
I’ve noticed that there is a real desire for change with a lot of sharing between companies. The gender imbalance is not going to be fixed overnight but the intent is there, as is a real commitment, from what I can see in most organisations. We need to continue to share approaches across the sector. I sit on the Highways England Supplier Diversity Forum, which includes contractors and consultants, and collaborating in this way is very powerful.

What can be done to encourage more young women to take up STEM careers?
I’m passionate about starting to engage as early as possible. Role models are so important. I was lucky to have a great role model in my mum, who was a forklift truck training instructor. She had a great career in a massively male-dominated world and she loved it. There should be obvious focus on primary and secondary education, and key is normalising all careers with no gender bias or stereotyping. Subtle messaging from teachers and parents makes a real difference, and storytelling can be very powerful. Social media can help with this.
Finally, organisations like ourselves have a huge role in outreach. At Turner & Townsend, we actively encourage all staff to take part in corporate responsibility community work to help with role model visibility. Even if you influence one person, it’s been a success.

What kind of support have you received that has made a difference to your career?
Coaches, sponsors and mentors have all been critical to my career. The late Dr Stephen Bird, who we sadly lost recently, was managing director of South West Water and was one of my first bosses. He intimidated me initially, but I respected him hugely. He was an absolute rock and would always challenge me in a constructive way to think differently. I would not have been able to address some of the challenges in my career without his sage advice.

Finally, what do you hope to get from Women in Water?
I’m really looking forward to learning, sharing, getting involved and making some new connections.

Tania will lead workshops on networking and confidence building at Women in Water.

Regen, George’s Hall, Liverpool, England, UK

6 November 2019

Regen 2019 – the 6th Annual free-to-attend Exhibition, Conference & Networking Event for the UK Regeneration Industry.

Urban & rural regeneration is a massive industry in its own right, and continues to transform the prosperity of every town and city in the UK, and is the precise reason that Regen was launched 5 years ago. For example, even though the event is National, in Liverpool alone, there are currently 187 regeneration projects actually on site now, worth a staggering £3 Billion. Regeneration alone in the UK is reported to be currently valued at a staggering £200 Billion.

Regen has attracted 1,500+ registered delegates every year, and is now firmly established as the regeneration industry’s leading forum in the U.K.

The Exhibition

For the 50+ exhibitors, Regen is expected to once again sell out of available exhibition space, and will provide significant sales and business development opportunities whilst also offering an outstanding networking platform. Delegates from around the UK from all the following sectors, will converge on Liverpool, and as such represents a unique opportunity not to be missed.

• Urban & rural regeneration industry professionals
• Procurement Depts. of Town, City & County Councils, Local Planning Authorities
• Main contractors, construction companies
• Commercial, industrial & residential property developers
• Housing associations & house builders
• Town planners & urban design
• Civil & structural engineers
• Architects, specifiers, building designers & surveyors
• Local & central government agencies
• Investment agencies
• Product manufacturers, service suppliers & consultants

“Fantastic two days at Regen. Great to meet so many new contacts”
“Excellent event, well organised and good turnout, not to speak of the marvellous venue”
“A fantastic event, really worthwhile, thank you. We look forward to next year”
“The team had a fantastic time at Regen in Liverpool. Thanks for a great event”
“Time for the stand to come down at Regen – thanks for a great show”
“Thanks to the Regen Team for a great event over the last 2 days. What a superb venue too”

The Conference

After the huge success of the 5 previous events, the Conference has firmly become the industry’s leading forum for thought leadership in UK regeneration and economic development.

The 24 speaker Conference can be found on the relevant page of our website, and will once again address the latest issues in urban & rural regeneration, policy and implementation, highlighting the key successes made in major towns and cities, in areas such as city centre and waterfront redevelopments.

As Regeneration is about people, place, economic growth and investment which can create sustainable and resilient communities, the Conference will examine the challenges that face towns and cities, in terms of economic development, housing, construction and neighbourhood renewal, and will bring delegates together with policy experts, real-life case studies and industry leaders.

The Drinks Reception / Networking Evening

As the Exhibition & Conference finishes for the day on Wednesday 6 November, we move straight into the free–to–attend, complimentary 2 hour champagne drinks reception & networking evening with hundreds of industry colleagues, from 5.00pm – 7.00pm.
