‘Asset Management: Past, Present and Future’ – a Master Class with Dr Penny Burns, Tuesday July 2nd in London

AMCL, in association with Institute of Asset Management was proud to support a Master Class with Dr Penny Burns, on ‘Asset Management: Past, Present and Future’ on 2nd July at the IET London.

An inspiration to many of us, Penny – an economist – invented the modern idea of Asset Management around 1985 in Australia, along with Roger Byrne. Her first achievement was to work out the cost and timings of renewals for all the state assets in South Australia. In 1993 she wrote the first manual – the Total Asset Management Manual, for the NSW Government; and initiated the annual International AM Competition in 1996. She has been publishing the inspirational (and witty) Strategic Asset Management On-line since 1994, and set up the Asia-Pacific Institute for Good Asset Management with support from the Malaysian government, among others. 

She is one of a handful of Asset Management thought leaders from around the globe to win the AM Council’s MESA medal, and was last month cited by John Hardwick of AusGrid as one of the two major influences on his career. If she is not so well known here (the idea of AM arrived in the UK via Roger around 1994), she is – as they say – a legend in her own lifetime in Australia, New Zealand and Canada. 

The event is on July 2nd, 5:30pm for 6pm start at the IET, Savoy Place, London WC2R 0BL.
