Aberdeen, Highlands and Islands YPN

Welcome to the Aberdeen, Highlands and Islands YPN branch page

Welcome to the Aberdeen, Highlands and Islands YPN page.

The YPN was set up as a non-profit network, aiming to provide educational and networking opportunities to young professionals within the energy sector in the North East of Scotland. The initiative has gone from strength to strength in its appeal to both talented energy workers and key industry leaders in the region, drawing large audiences to the events in its yearly programme.

Each year, the EIYPN committee delivers three thought-provoking debates adopting the ‘Question Time’ format. This provides an excellent opportunity for the audience to raise their questions to a high calibre panel of industry experts, whilst keeping up-to-date on industry themes, engaging with senior professionals and building up their business networks.
