Series returns for Spring 2021 exploring changing face of industry

ACE’s Future of Consultancy themed webinars return with a new series exploring the changing face of the industry.

The virtual events include episodes on future risk, delivery models, pricing, roles and services, and are designed to not only provoke discussion and debate, but provide attendees with a firmer grasp of an ever-changing business landscape.

With the publication of the Construction Playbook and in advance of the expected launch of the Construction Innovation Hub’s Value Toolkit – both ‘game-changers’ in their own rights – there has never been a better time to explore the potential for new ways of delivering and working.

Joining your host, ACE’s chief executive Hannah Vickers, will be a range of industry thought leaders from the Cabinet Office, CECA, and the Construction Innovation Hub (CIH). Prominent guests from ACE members including Arcadis, Arup, Buro Happold and WSP in the UK also join to share their experiences and insight.

    Ron Lang (CIH) and Tim Chapman (Arup) join Hannah Vickers to provide an introduction and overview of the new delivery models outlined in the recently published Construction Playbook. Together they will explore what it all means for consultants.

  • Replay: Project Speed and risk 
    Tim Chapman (Arup) delivers an engaging overview of how we can develop our approach to risk to unlock better, greener, faster delivery of projects and programmes.

  • Replay: Pricing: Learning from other industries
    Margot Day (Buro Happold, chair ACE Legal & Commercial), Nick Smith (Siemens) and Sarah Wilkes (Arcadis) join Tim Chapman of Arup to explore what we can learn from other industries on pricing as our offering and services evolve.

  • Replay: Pricing: Getting the best from consultants 
    Emma-Jane Houghton (Cabinet Office) and Hannah Vickers join host Lara Potter, ACE's Chair of Future Skills Group to discuss how to select the right pricing and reward model, and how to incentivise consultants to deliver their best work.

  • Replay: Future roles and services for consultants 
    Andy Clarke (Costain), Barrie Sharp (Crofton), Neil Thompson (Atkins) and Paul Tremble (WSP in the UK, chair of ACE's Future Markets) explore the future roles consultancies will play as the partner of choice along the lifecycle of an asset.
