New webinar series features interview with Sir John Armitt

Building on the success of ACE’s Navigating COVID-19 and their own Coming out of COVID series in the spring and summer, the Infrastructure Intelligence Live webinar series will explore the key issues as our sector – and society – emerges from lockdown.

Taking place every Friday until the end of the year, the events feature an in-depth interview with Sir John Armitt, chair of the National Infrastructure Commission (NIC).

A second spotlight interview will feature Victoria Hills, prominent chief executive of the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). One of the most high-profile women leaders in construction, Victoria is passionate about planning great liveable places and has an unrivalled insight into big city governance, having worked for all three London mayors.

Further episodes will explore the levelling-up agenda and bridging the north/south divide, delivering a green economy, planning and procurement, winning international work and the prospects for our industry in 2021. Follow Infrastructure Intelligence for the latest updates on guests and speakers.

Commenting on the new series of events editor Andy Walker said: “As our industry emerges slowly into the new normal as we start the recovery from the COVID crisis, it’s more important than ever that we try to bring construction professionals together to discuss some of the key issues we all face as an industry and indeed a society. This Infrastructure Intelligence Live series will provide that opportunity for discussion, debate and knowledge sharing.”

Thanks to the generous support of Infrastructure Intelligence’s strategic partner, specialist communications agency for the built environment, BECG, all events are free to attend.
