One of the best speaker line-ups yet has been assembled for this year’s European CEO Conference which takes place on 6-7 November 2018 at the EBRD in London.

The annual event for chief executives and other industry leaders is attended by senior business executives from across Europe. The conference combines a hard-hitting business programme with exclusive social and networking opportunities, including the European CEO Awards gala dinner which recognises and rewards the outstanding leaders in the consultancy and engineering industry.

This year’s speaker line-up includes FIDIC president Alain Bentéjac, Arcadis UK CEO Mark Cowlard, Ian Galbraith, group director operations at Mott MacDonald, Arup’s group chairman Gregory Hodkinson and AECOM EMIA CEO Lara Poloni.

European Bank for Reconstruction and Development director Susan Goeransson is also speaking about public and private sector infrastructure finance trends across Europe, alongside a leading panel of financiers and investors. The conference will also hear from HS2 CEO Mark Thurston, Patricia Moore, UK managing director at Turner & Townsend and WSP CEO Mark Naysmith, all of whom will take part in a session on economic infrastructure.

The conference provides a unique forum for discussion and debate between CEOs in the consultancy and engineering industry in the UK and continental Europe. Attendees will be able to discuss the impact of the economic climate on markets and growth strategies and gain real insights from experts in their field to help position and direct their firms’ corporate vision, mission and business strategy.

It’s rare for such a high-profile line-up of CEOs and business leaders to appear at a single event and there’s no doubt that those who attend will benefit greatly from the experience. The full agenda for the conference can be viewed here.

The event is preceded by the European CEO Awards which takes place on Monday 5 November 2018. The awards recognise exceptional, innovative and creative leaders who have demonstrated strong integrity and contributed to both the industry and wider society. Nominations for the awards close on 21 September and full details of how to enter are listed here.
