Gulf Futures Forum, EPC, Ukraine, Geo-Politics, Relearning History, A World in Crisis and much more... 









Hello. How are you? Good to have you here! If you're new, you've just received the Evoke newsletter – a weekly catch up on readings, industry drops and some songs to serenade you on your commute or otherwise! Now, back to business...

We are gearing up for conferences right now – from the construction industry to the geo-political scene, heavy hitters in their respective fields are weighing in on post pandemic insights, road maps to recovery and risk mitigation.

From the EPC Summit and The Gulf Futures Forum, March is set to be a busy month of learnings from the experts. We're beavering away on the sidelines to bring them into fruition via some slick coordination, marketing and project management! You can find some deeper information on both conferences just below.

In 'Shaping Tomorrow' we've got a look into the continuing conflict and the prevailing absence of a political solution in The Ukraine and what the forecasting is on the escalating situation. And in lighter matters, 'Diversions' includes a list of the cinematic masterpieces of every decade from Far Out Magazine.

If you're in the Middle East (half of us at Evoke are!) and are leveraging on the lovely weather with some backyard BBQ-ing, some steak cooking training is on offer from 'Tasting Table' which may bring some long-term (unbeknownst!) errors to light.

Happy sizzling!

Team E.

Innovation and Solutions for

EPC Projects


The traditional approach to EPC project management (engineering, procurement and construction contract) is evolving. The parameters placed by the pandemic gave rise to looking inward for outward change. Bringing together key market players across EPC project management and legal sectors, Keynotion is hosting a three-day conference between 22-24th March 2022 to cover lessons learned during the pandemic and offer prediction for future challengers.

EPC project management is not new. Nowadays, EPC project management pursues various objectives and goals, such as lower costs, higher profits, better quality, and zero incidence during the execution of projects in the fields of oil and gas, petrochemical, refinery, rower-generation, energy transportation, steel plants, and more. However, the traditional approach to EPC projects does not consider the new material risks triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, including potential COVID-19 impacts on construction programmes, productivity and supply chain.

The Gulf Futures Forum


The ‘Gulf Futures Forum’ is an online global conference, which starts on March 9th 2022 to address the future of strategic risk in the Gulf, and more broadly towards the security and commercial interests of a range of industries. The Gulf Futures Forum will appeal to the political establishment, commercial enterprises, the maritime sector, risk professionals, insurers, investors, and traders.

Topics that will be highlighted include the strategic calculus of GCC States, future of Iranian sanctions, Iran’s nuclear aspirations, the strategic risks posed to energy and maritime security, cybersecurity risks, supply chain resilience in the Gulf, and the strategic ramifications of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan to the Gulf.

Register today - to join in the discussion and learn more about the current risks in the Middle East both for businesses and as individuals.

We know everyone says it's not all work, it's about play, too – and as much as we don't want to sound like a broken record, there is truth in the truism. Like we said earlier, we are all about ingesting the complex and the trivial in equal measure. In fact, we love nothing more than thinking deeply about the more 'playful' things in life. Read ' em and ponder away.
