Advancing technical leadership
As part of our journey to evolve our technical services, we held our first Service Line Leader Forum in Sydney recently. We brought together 43 professionals from Australia and New Zealand for two days of learning, collaborating and connecting.
As technical trailblazers in their disciplines, our service line leaders are integral to helping us deliver greater value to our clients across the project life cycle. They thrive on solving complex multi-faceted technical challenges using contemporary technologies and applications.
A focus on client success
Our Chairman, Rob Knott, attended the conference and spoke about the value of technical leadership. He says, “It was a significant opportunity to bring our service line leaders together to enhance their technical skills. More importantly, it provided a platform for us to address the constant evolution of cutting-edge design technologies, best practices and project execution with the objective of making our clients successful.”
Jill Hannaford, Technical Services Leader – Australia, says, “During the two-day forum, our professionals were able to learn about commercialising technical ideas and solutions, and the best ways of connecting our global networks and building our knowledge hubs. They were empowered with sessions on influencing their networks, and guidance on providing stimulating thought leadership.”
