The role of an ex-shipyard apprentice in the delivery of global infrastructure projects… you can make THE difference
This event is free for members and non-members.
To celebrate the launch of the Furness Group of the APM North West branch, we are delighted to announce that Steve Livingstone will be presenting The role of an ex-shipyard apprentice in the delivery of global infrastructure projects… you can make THE difference.
Steve Livingstone was born in Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria, and started his career as an apprentice in the Barrow Shipyard, before moving into the oil and gas industry via the South Morecambe Onshore Terminal.
Steve spent the majority of the informative years of his career in the oil and gas industry, undertaking roles in operations, maintenance and projects. Whilst with KBR, Steve led the completion of the BG Armada Project in the North Sea through to hydrocarbon introduction and was Operations Manager in Atyrau, Kazakhstan.
Steve joined BNFL at Sellafield in 2003 as Head of Site Services, where he took on a number of roles, including Head of Programme Controls, Head of Encapsulations and Effluents Plants (where he gained his nuclear operations wings), and finally as Superintendent Major Projects. Steve left in 2008 to join the BBC where he established the programme management arrangements for the move from White City to MediaCity, Salford Quays. He then spent five years at Heathrow Airport cumulating in being the Project Director on the successfully delivered £2.5 billion “Terminal 2: The Queen’s Terminal” major project, that was voted as the world's best terminal in 2018.
Steve spent 18 months as the Delivery Director for Hinckley Point C, before returning to Sellafield Ltd as a Board Director with the executive, accountable for projects delivery. Steve led an organisation responsible for the delivery of multi hundred million pound projects, fundamental in supporting the Sellafield mission to safely and securely remediate the Sellafield site to benefit the industry, nation and region. In 2018, after resigning from Sellafield, Steve set up his own Freelance Advisory business through which he supports executives, in both client and suppliers, in understanding the appropriate project delivery environments to underpin their project success.
Throughout his career, Steve, who is married with two grown up sons, has continued to live in Barrow and is proud of his roots in Cumbria.
This event is suitable for professionals with any level of experience.
