How being an IEEE volunteer can "transform" your career

Join this event to hear from Ronnie Minhaz, Transformer Consulting Services Inc., who will be talking about his experience volunteering with IEEE and how it helped him to build his consulting business.

Ronnie Minhaz began his journey with IEEE as the GOLD (now Young Professionals) Chair. He then transitioned to Section Chair for the Southern Alberta section. This experience led him to join the IEEE Power and Energy Society (PES) Transformers Committee, which has allowed him to give various technical presentations for PES Chapters around the world.

During this talk, Ronnie will discuss how his involvement in IEEE helped him to grow his transformer consulting business and allowed him to travel around the world for technical seminars, site inspections, and more.

Before founding his own company, Transformer Consulting Services Inc., Ronnie worked as a Transformer Designer at Pauwels Canada, as an Equipment Engineer at SNC Lavalin and Enmax Power, and as a Substation Lead Engineer at McGregor Construction. Ronnie has the experience of performing Quality Assurance inspections in Transformer Manufacturing plants around the world. Besides providing services on Transformer as consultant, Ronnie has been an instructor for training sessions, workshops, conferences and seminars related to transformers around the world.
