Keynote Speakers Include
Paul Boylan - Vivid Edge - Technical Director
Setting aside my passions for Engineering, Project Management, Premises Operations and Maintenance etc., I am very engaged in matters of Energy optimisation, sustainability and my focus in recent years has been on implementing energy/environmental initiatives, sharing best practices, raising awareness and closing the loop on the many strands associated with 'being green'. These strands range anywhere from corporate social responsibility to participation in the green economy.
I am currently Technical Director and Co-Founder with Vivid Edge, a company that finances energy efficiency projects which enables organisations to gain access to cutting edge energy efficiency equipment which amongst other things results in immediate cost savings, increased operational resilience and reduced emissions with no capital outlay.
