Introduction to Asset Management -  Sydney 18 March 2019

Successful asset management relies heavily on the asset information retained and provided by works officers and other frontline staff that manage assets daily at the coal face. It is critical in delivering quality, sustainable and efficient services to the community.

Practical day to day local asset management knowledge can inform Council Policy and be used in the development of AM Plans.. It enables transparent management of the assets, affords greater accountability, cost savings and results in a more satisfied community. AM Plans and practices provides engineering and asset managers the ammunition they need to successfully lobby for increased funding for assets.

This course uses real-life case studies at Council’s to demonstrate where AM has led to real improvements. It also serves to equip you with the right tools and mechanisms to take AM from the coal face to the Council.Chambers.


INVITATION TO ATTEND
This course would be best suited to Works Officers and technical and operational staff, Finance and elected Councillors.  To keep the interest of the audience during the training course, it is proposed that the course involve only the minimum of “dry” AM theory, but instead focus on case studies and involve a variety of practical activities during the day.

PRESENTER DETAILS

Nicola started her career during a time of rapid growth and change with Eacham Shire Council before it became the Tablelands Regional Council in the 2008 Queensland Local Government Reform. At that time the Tablelands Regional Council (TRC) was made up of 4 amalgamated Councils, all of which had its own methodologies, practices, processes and systems for managing their infrastructure assets and delivering services to the community. Her role was to develop and implement the asset management framework that would enable the new council to meet the service needs and requirements of its community. This included a series of educational workshops delivered to key staff members and Councillors about the importance of asset management and sustainable practices.
Nicola then made the move interstate. In New South Wales her work at Cessnock City Council began by building and developing the asset management systems and process from the ground up.  
 More recently her work at Bankstown City Council has seen the development and implementation of an end-to-end Asset Management System. In addition to her achievements at Bankstown Nicola has recently published papers and presented at National & International engineering conferences about leading excellence and innovation in this field.
Nicola has Bachelor of Science, Post Graduate Diploma Infrastructure Engineering, and a Masters Infrastructure Engineering and Management. She has been nominated for the 2016 Ministers Award for Woman in Local Government and is the recent recipient of the David Abbott Award.
She’s enthusiastic & passionate about the application of sustainable asset management practices within local government that achieve informed decisions to better serve our environment and the community, now and in the future.
