AGI Members Dave and Matt, supported by others, enjoyed taking part in the two-day GEO Business conference in London, manning the AGI stand and delivering an interactive session on future geographers.
The conference and exhibition delivered a wide range of content from the latest surveying techniques through to an expert panel discussion on the role of the national mapping agency and the future surveyor. The interactive session revealed some interesting insights, such as a clear belief geospatial is needed in many parts of the curriculum and that the current and future geospatial staff will need to continually learn evolving technology to stay at the top of their careers. The AGI's CPD programme is a great mechanism for this which is already in place; ever thought about becoming chartered? More info here.
Next year's GEO Business dates are already out: 22-23 May 2018, so do get involved!
