Come and join us for conversation and insights into what it takes to reduce risk and increase effectiveness in large complex projects. There’ll be something to eat and a glass or two to enjoy. We’ll be discussing how we meet the challenges of delivering major infrastructure, construction and engineering projects; and lessons learnt in forging alignment and developing world class capability in collaboration and leadership across organisations. Your thinking will be stimulated by hearing from:

  • Andy Mitchell CBE, CEO of Tideway, who will bring to life the opportunities and challenges of leading complex multi-partner projects
