At a meeting of the International Energy Consultants Organisation (IECO) on June 8, 2010, it was agreed that TGP Director (& IECO Secretary), Andrea Collins, should lead a working group to convey effectively to clients the benefits of the organisation.
The International Energy Consultants Organisation (IECO) acts as a forum for companies and individuals who are providing consultancy as their main business in the many fields of geoscience survey and HSE within the Energy industry. The Organisation is aimed at those companies that engage consultants primarily for field-related activities.
The consulting industry faces many significant issues, both internally and in our wider relations with clients and contractors. The IECO will allow us to debate these issues and to put forward solutions and present a common front that will give added leverage from being a member of the IECO. The Organisation has already identified a number of topics for discussion including how to attract younger people to address the ageing demographics in our industry and improvements in standardising contractual terms and conditions.
Andrea Collins said "I am pleased to be heading the new group. Our aim is that by the end of 2010, benefits should be known by the relevant parties."
