GBRTT’s Programme Director announced as guest speaker at RSN 2022

Paul Harwood, Programme Director, Industry Commercial at Great British Railways Transition Team (GBRTT) is one of six leading industry figures to speak at Rail Business Daily’s IConference at Rolling Stock Networking (RSN) 2022.

The full line-up of speakers for the event at Derby Arena on July 7 can be viewed here.

Paul began his career in the rail industry as a trainee on the British Rail finance scheme and continued to work in a variety of finance roles on the railway.


He then moved into business planning, working in operations, safety and engineering. Paul then returned to group finance during the exciting time when Network Rail was created.

Since then, Paul’s career progressed through rail industry planning in a succession of increasingly senior roles, finally as Strategy and Planning Director (South), before being appointed to the Investment Director role in Network Rail Southern, in which he was responsible for Strategic Planning, Business Development and regional projects such as the Thameslink Programme, Gatwick Airport Station, and a portfolio of major signalling renewals.

Paul has been on secondment from this role for the last 10 months into the GBRTT team, where he has led, in partnership with the DfT, on the development of the Passenger Service Contract proposals, including necessary policy positions to support this. Work has then broadened into driving wider commercial value opportunities into the evolving GBRTT development and organisational design

Paul’s presentation at the IConference will cover:

  • An intro to GBRTT, including latest activity (legislation consultation, etc)
  • GBR as a strong commercial partner
  • Change, challenges and opportunities for the Rolling Stock Market

This year, Inspiring Rail People by Inspiring Rail People is the theme for this year’s Rail Business Daily (RBD) conference at Rolling Stock Networking (RSN).

The annual conference is this year designed to Inspire, Inform, Impact and offer Insight to help you grow your business.

With speakers in procurement roles from several well-known rail companies, the presenters will undoubtedly have something of interest to showcase for all delegates.

The event is held upstairs, above the main exhibition hall between 10am and 3pm. There is no need to book a ticket to the IConference. Simply choose which speaker(s) you wish to see and turn up.
