South East Branch - letter from the Chair

Welcome to the IOSH South East Branch.

With over 1,700 members working in a diverse range of sectors, we strive to provide a varied programme which offers something of interest to all and which reflects current priorities within the profession. The format of our meetings varies from presentations to interactive workshop sessions.

At times, you may feel you are a lone voice, so the majority of our meetings start with a buffet to encourage a friendly atmosphere in which you can network with like-minded individuals, share experiences and exchange best practice.

I have the honour of working alongside a committee of dedicated individuals who possess a wealth of experience both within their fields and our profession more generally. It is their expertise and contacts with enable us to provide a fantastic programme of events each year.

We also operate a vibrant Mentoring Scheme, which provides a group of trained Mentors to support you during your journey through the various levels of IOSH Membership and continuing professional development. As well as providing a trained Mentor you can contract for advice and support, Mentors and Mentees meet as a group at regular points throughout the year.

I hope you find this year's programme of interest. It can be accessed via the link to the left. If there is a topic you would like to see on a future programme, please email us on southeast@ioshnetworks.com.

I look forward to seeing you at on our events in the near future.
