The EGYPS Young Professionals Roundtable provides a platform to create a dialogue between young professionals and industry seniors. As the future engine for Egypt's progress, it is important that the industry listens to the opinions and ideas of the younger generation. The Young Professionals Roundtable will provide an environment for open and honest discussion, generating conversations which centre around development, empowerment and sustainability.

Over the course of three modules, there will be contributions from leading IOCs, NOCs and Service Providers who will offer their insights on a range of topics. The young professionals in attendance will be encouraged to voice their thoughts, ultimately contributing to the outcome of the Roundtable which will feed into the development of the Modernisation Programme.

Nominated by their companies, the 20 young professionals will be from a range of companies and job functions, offering a plethora of opinions based on their varied backgrounds in the oil & gas industry. The Roundtable will provide an opportunity for the industry's future generation of business leaders to contribute to the sector’s progress.
