AREG is pleased to share that OGV Energy Media Group will be headline sponsor for its Energy Futures Communication Network in 2023/24.
The network, which is chaired by bp communications and external affairs manager, Stephen Christie, will meet (virtually) for the first time this year on Thursday 22nd June. This month’s event will include guest speaker, Natalie Coupar, communications, and marketing director, Offshore Energies UK (OEUK).
Network chair, Stephen Christie, said:
“I’m looking forward to exploring some of the key challenges we face in the energy sector, specifically around adjusting our communications practices to meet the sustainability expectations of employees, stakeholders, and consumers. Every organisation has slightly different factors that influence its messaging, but we are all working in the same space and can learn a lot from one another.”
The meeting next week will focus on the opportunities and challenges of communicating through the energy transition, specifically for organisations moving towards net zero and those within the renewables sector, navigating how to share key messages with the media and other stakeholders.
Dan Hyland, operations, and sales director, OGV Energy Media Group said:
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to support the AREG Communications Network. As one of the leading media organisations in the energy sector, we recognise the importance of a strong communications network for the industry, where challenges can be shared, and solutions sought together. We hope the relationship with AREG can offer significant insight and education to the participating stakeholders and more widely to the supply chain.”
Lead of OEUK’s communications and marketing team, responsible for protecting and promoting industry reputation through engagement with media, content and campaigns, Natalie Coupar is well placed to share her knowledge of communications within the rapidly changing energy sector. She said:
“Collaboration is critical to the success of the offshore energy industry and so I’m delighted to continue our excellent partnership with AREG and its network. Communicating well can make the difference between public acceptability and public approval of this sector, and I look forward to sharing some of the insights from OEUK and industry’s communications journey.”
AREG’s five Energy Futures Networks, which include RE-YP, Supply Chain and Technology, Communications, Professional Services and Public Policy, encourage collaboration among its diverse membership community and foster the sharing of information and best practices, alongside exploring opportunities for collaboration within the renewables sector.
