Acmena is very proud to announce that Matthew Manger (Systems Engineering), Pravin Hiremath (Systems Assurance), Luke King (Systems Engineering) and Jan Asmussen (Human Factors) have been selected for the RISSB Horizons 5.0 Program.

Offered to just 80 up-and-coming technical professionals under the age of 35, the Horizons Program provides participants with invaluable opportunities to expand their knowledge of cutting-edge technologies and innovation, develop critical thinking skills, in addition to problem solving, communication and collaboration.

Beginning in February, the course is comprised of three two-day on-site forums and two half-day virtual forums, in which participants will be involved in a series of webinars, workshops, and group projects, including a ‘shark tank’ panel where they will pitch competing ideas.

Supported by key industry leaders, the course offers participants the chance to develop their professional networks and receive mentorship from CEOs and senior managers of major transport organisations.

“I’m really excited to have been selected for the Horizons 5.0 Program,” said Acmena Systems Engineering Consultant, Matthew Manger.

“It’s a privilege to be part of a program that has been designed not only to develop the leadership skills of the participants, but also the future capability of the Australian rail industry.

“I am really looking forward to having the chance to learn from experienced industry figures and to collaborate with likeminded professionals.”

Delighted to see four Acmena staff members join applicants from major industry organisations on the program, Acmena Business Development Manager, Nicolas Teulier, said: “Not only does their inclusion showcase Acmena as a recognised contributor to the Australian rail industry, it also aligns with our commitment to providing our team with meaningful opportunities to develop their careers.

“Horizons provides a fantastic opportunity to learn about rail, but it also enables participants to network with peers and executives and build the long-lasting connections that are so critical to progressing your career.

“The Australian railway industry is a very small family, so building those relationships is vital. I know that Matthew, Pravin, Luke and Jan will make the most of this amazing opportunity.”
