Construction Leadership

June 26 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Date: Wednesday 26 June

Time: 8.30am – 11.00am

Venue: The Grand Gosforth Park Hotel

Cost: £15 + VAT Member / £30 + VAT Non Member

Procuring for Value  asks some very challenging questions for clients, and represents a very real contrast to existing culture and practice within clients and their supply chains.  This event takes a step back and looks at what this means – Construction Leadership, namely the call to clients and their advisors to build and demonstrate leadership.

We are delighted to welcome Andy Mitchell to the North East to speak.  Andy is CEO of the multi-billion Thames Tideway infrastructure project and Co-Chair of the Construction Leadership Council.  The Government wants very different outcomes from construction compared to business as usual; this is an opportunity to engage with a national construction leader on what the opportunities are for the North East in this context and understand how we can shape success.

There is a desperate need for ambitious, transformational clients to seize these opportunities and create the space for change.  Tom Jarman will be presenting on client leadership – what does this look like, how do we recognise it?  And what can we do to support it?

Finally, we will hear from Oliver Novakovic, Technical and Innovation Director at Barratts.  Oliver is passionate about performance, productivity and quality, and has extensive experience in the construction sector to draw on, including the current AIMCH programme.  He will talk about construction leadership from his perspective, what it looks like in practice, and outline what difference the space for change, driven by clients, could make.
