A leading authority in asset management, John Woodhouse will chair and present in the new session during which he will elaborate on this past experience while working with power and water utilities from around the world. His presentation is entitled, “Asset Management in Utility Networks: Case Studies of Moving from Good Intentions to Good Practices.”
