A Chemical Industry workshop for investors and advisors to the chemicals sector

A workshop tailored for investors and advisors to the chemicals sector.

Building on our many years of expertise in the chemical industry, we have designed a one-day training course tailored specifically for participants from the financial services community (advisors and investors).

Taught by Vice-President of Nexant Training, Manuel Asali, the training commences with an overview of the energy context and the main petrochemical value chains, followed by topics most relevant to the financial services industry.

These courses are designed for both technical and non-technical industry professionals, new to the industry as well as those that desire a refresher course. Our past attendees have represented a wide range of job functions and industries.
