A new series of ACE webinars exploring the changing face of the industry is taking place throughout the spring.
The virtual events include webinars on future risk, delivery models, pricing, roles and services and are designed to not only provoke discussion and debate but also 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 the 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 will also join to share their experiences and insight.
Events in the Future of Consultancy webinar series are listed below. All webinars are free to attend for ACE members and non-members alike.
