Diving Safety Conference – Headline Speaker

mark_powell2We’re very pleased to announce that the headline speaker for 2016 JS Diving Safety Conference will be Mark Powell.   An accomplished technical diver, instructor and TDI instructor trainer he sits on the British Diving Safety Group (DSG) and HSE Recreational Diving Industry Committee.

His book “Deco for Divers” was published in 2008 and is an extremely accessible  overview of the theory and physiology of decompression.  It has quickly become the standard text on the subject and is recommended reading by a number of the technical diving agencies.

Mark’s passion is wreck diving both in the UK and abroad.  He is currently involved in a number of projects including documenting the wreck of HMS Hermes, the worlds first custom aircraft carrier, as well as searching for the other wrecks that were sank at the same time as HMS Hermes. He is also involved in an ongoing project in Malta to identify a number of unknown Second World War wrecks.
