About this event

IET Vice President Dr Simon Harrison is a director of Mott MacDonald's global energy business, currently leading activities across all renewable energy technologies, energy environmental issues and energy policy, finance and regulation, but with previous background in transmission planning and the development of privately financed fossil fuel generation projects. His work is highly international and has included projects in Europe, South and South East Asia, the Middle East and the Americas. Simon holds BSc and PhD degrees from Southampton University, UK, where he is also a visiting professor.

Snooker champion Dennis Taylor has had a glittering career which saw him win the World Title in 1985 in an unforgettable match with Steve Davis which he won 18-17 on the final black at 10 minutes past midnight. An extremely humorous character, Dennis is snooker's joker in the pack, and his after dinner speaking and his trick shot displays are in constant demand.

Reasons to attend

The Annual Dinner is one of the highlights of the Manchester Network calendar and is an ideal opportunity to network with friends and colleagues. The standard ticket price is £60. A special rate of £40 is available for Retired Members and Young Professionals.
