• Environmental communication specialist

About me

I am an experienced environmental communication specialist and have worked in the oil and gas industry since 1981. I have found my way into environmental communication in 1986. I have worked in upstream as well as downstream, in the Netherlands as well as the UK and in operational and project roles. My exposure to different ways of working and to different cultures taught me to grow past my own assumptions. I have been able to transform that exposure into a uniquely effective way of approaching the management of environmental issues.

References about me

In his role as legal/permit advisor, Jos supported well and well intervention operations of the NAM for Shell UK. Through his ability to interpret the legal requirements and educate management and crews how to comply with these, he added real value to the organization. His handover training was excellent. Jos is a good problem solver and a thinker.

I worked closely with Jos on the development and implementation of an environmental management system. I found Jos a pleasure to work with. His fresh approach and new ideas were a real leap forward. He is a progressive thinker and able to effectively translate his many years of experience into practical improvements that ultimately reduce the risk to a business of failing to manage its environmental aspects appropriately.

When Centrica Energy North Sea was looking for a replacement of their Sr. Environmental Specialist on short notice, I received the CV of Jos Tissen. At first glance there were doubts whether he fitted our organization (knowledge of multiple regulations), within a week these doubts were taken away. Jos Tissen took on board our way of working and in no time he improved our procedures. A pleasant personality and added value to the organization, especially by his out of the box approach, always open for innovations.

I urge you to allow Jos to take you on a journey into environmental risk management and communication, from the most technical aspects to the most global, and you will probably feel some fatigue but you will never regret it. Genius cannot be managed but must be nurtured and supported. Jos is one of the few environmental scientists I have met in my life and one that you need by your side in today’s business environment. An early morning coffee and discussion on life and the universe and stuff is also great and comes with the Jos-package.
