2016 EHS Forum - Facilitated Roundtable Discussions

Oct. 26-28, 2016

Each session was led by a knowledgeable facilitator(s) and include some content presentation, with the bulk of the time focused on discussion and audience dialogue. Audiences came ready with questions that kept them up at night and shared their strategies for addressing challenges. Sometimes group discussions are the best way to learn, benchmark and connect with your peers. This track features several sessions that are interactive and informative. They focus on discussion and dialogue from audience members with some content presentation. The sessions will cover a range of issues that EHS&S professionals face on a daily basis. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions and share strategies for addressing challenges.

If you're looking for new ideas to improve efficiency, manage risk or advance sustainability, you'll find inspiration through the interactive discussions and peer case studies the Forum delivers.
