TV presenter and maths expert Rachel Riley has been announced as host of the 2018 Offshore Achievement Awards this month.
Returning by popular demand after being involved in previous years, Rachel will present winners announced on the night with trophies designed by Robin Pioche of Gray’s School of Art, who won the student trophy design competition.
Rachel is well known for her involvement with long-running quiz show Countdown and is also a regular panellist on comedy show 8 out of 10 Cats. Brought up in Essex, Rachel graduated from Oxford with a mathematics degree and is passionate about popularising maths and the sciences.
Ian Phillips, Chairman of award organisers SPE Aberdeen, said: “We are delighted that Rachel will be joining us again to host this year’s Offshore Achievement Awards. She is always hugely popular with attendees, and her advocacy of science, technology, engineering and maths subjects is perfectly in tune with the aims of both SPE Aberdeen and the awards.
“With less than a month to go until the awards, and all our finalists offering something exceptional, this is a time to be proud of the great work going on in our industry. We can’t wait to reveal the winners.”
The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, 22 March 2018 at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC). Finalists from both the offshore oil and gas and renewables sectors were revealed in January, with categories covering technical innovation, company performance and individual achievement.
