ACE’s chief executive delivered a keynote address at this year’s UK Infrastructure Show.
Focusing on the political environment around recovery, Hannah Vickers’ presentation stressed how our industry already has the answers on some of the biggest issues Government is facing.
Moving online owing to COVID-19, the conference keynote is freely available to view until the end of the month.
Once registered and logged in, visitors can navigate a virtual conference hall, visit exhibition stands and, of course, view speeches and panel sessions. The keynote sits alongside others from the Infrastructure Projects Authority, HS2 and the House of Commons Estate.
Hannah’s speech urged the Government to set out a long-term approach through the National Infrastructure Strategy, but at the same time have the confidence to invest in the short-term pipeline.
In return, she urged our industry to work together to demonstrate what we’re capable of, to modernise delivery models and to help clients buy in a different way. All of this would allow a renewed focus on innovation.
