In October this year, Lalit Bhamare took over from Wonuola Scott as SPE Aberdeen Young Professionals (YPs) Chair. Wonuola led the SPE YP’s section very successfully and Lalit will continue his efforts. As a graduate in petroleum engineering, he has been involved in SPE from his undergraduate college days in India. After moving to Aberdeen, he was president of the student chapter at RGU while completing his Masters. After graduating it was a seamless transition to the SPE YP team in Aberdeen. Lalit has been a member of this team for four years volunteering in different capacities. As a team, they have organised various events over the years for students as well as YPs, such as SPE Petroleague and Emerging Engineers Forum.
Over the years, the YP Aberdeen section has organised fantastic events such as Simplified Series and Unplugged 360. Their aim this year will be to maintain this standard and attract more industry leaders to share their ideas with YPs on this engaging platform. With the market showing signs of improvement, Lalit wants to encourage YPs and students to engage more with the industry on various platforms which improve job prospects as well career progression. With this in mind, the YPs have a great line up of speakers for the Simplified Series and are also collaborating with other societies on a joint event taking place later this month on soft skill development.
Lalit recently commented: “SPE Aberdeen YP committee is a collaborative team which comes together to organise events and be a part of multi-cultural team. Volunteering in SPE Aberdeen provides an opportunity to learn many soft skills such as commitment and leadership in a fun and stimulating way. These skills go a long way in career development for anyone working in the industry. We as an SPE YP team would like to welcome new volunteers to be a part of SPE YP to collaborate with us for organising more events and make new friends along the way”.
