Connect with Alan Sutherland
VicWater's Connect conference will commence with a keynote presentation from Alan Sutherland, Chief Executive, Water Industry Commission for Scotland (WICS).
10,000 miles apart yet closer than we might think? The story of Scotland’s public sector water service: successes, mistakes, principles followed, and the questions yet to be answered.
In April 2008 Scotland became the first country in the world to open up water and sewerage services to competition for all non-household customers, allowing them (public sector, non-profit and business organisations) to choose who provides their services. In this session Alan Sutherland describes his experience of 20 years of economic regulation in Scotland, drawing out some useful parallels and insights for those involved in delivering water and sewerage services in Victoria.
We can’t wait to Connect with you 20-21 May 2021!
