hsse 2022 launch

01 SEPTEMBER 2022

Good afternoon, everyone.

Thank you for joining us today for the launch of our 26th Annual Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) Conference & Exhibition.

We are very delighted and grateful to have your participation and support today as we seek to build on the work that AMCHAM T&T has been doing for a quarter of a century.

But despite our proud legacy over the last 26 years, this year’s conference is going to have a more futuristic focus. To move forward we must adopt a learner’s mindset – one that will help us to usher in a new era of progress and success. As the futurist Alvin Toffler wrote: "The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn."

This quote is most fitting to what we are trying to do here today and over the coming years because it forms the backdrop of this year’s Conference and Exhibition...
