This workshop will show the participants how best to use LinkedIn to grow their business network.  It will show you how to build a powerful profile that people will engage with and that can be found far more regularly in searches.  
It will also show you how to search effectively as well as pointing out those hidden elements of LinkedIn, so you can make your experience more effective. For further information please click on the link below to visit the 3CPD website.

PPN/UCEM site tour of Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station

DATE:  Friday 4 October 2019 from 1.00pm-2.30pm

LOCATION:   Hinkley Point C Power Station, Bridgewater, Somerset

PRICE:   £20pp for PPN members and guests
               £20pp for UCEM students
                 (£10 reimbursement eligible on attendance for UCEM students only)
(A donation of £5 per person to Breast Cancer Now (HPC's chosen charity) is included in the above price - to help save the women we love.)

This is a 'sealed tour' which will take our group on to the construction site (via the provided coach/minibus).  Hinkley Point C is one of the largest and most complex projects in Europe and will take 10 years to complete.  It will be the first in a new generation of nuclear power stations in the UK.

The design of the UK EPRs that will be built at Hinkley Point C represent a major development on previous PWRs, making them amongst the safest and most efficient civil nuclear power generators ever designed.

The UK EPR design marks significant progress towards sustainability. It has been designed to use less uranium and produce almost a third less long-lived radioactive wastes compared with water reactors in operation today.

Please note that all visits are subject to site operations and HPC reserves the right to cancel, modify or postpone HPC visits at any time.  The content of the visit and the permitted access time to site is at the discretion of HPC.

Photographic ID (current passport or driving licence) will be required to gain access onto site for everyone aged over 18 years.
