Lord Richard Best, Sir John Armitt and Peter Hansford join 'Inspiring the Future' conference
On 24 November 2014 in London the Chartered Institute of Building will launch its ‘Inspiring the Future of Construction’ conference. The event focusses on the skills challenges facing construction and why employers are at the heart of the solutions.
In the first wave of speaker announcements the CIOB has confirmed Sir John Armitt, Chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority and City and Guilds, Lord Richard Best President of the Local Government Association, Peter Hansford the Government’s Chief Construction Adviser and Ghassan Aouad CIOB President.
“The supply of skills and the next generation of talent is the number one issue facing construction”, said Bridget Bartlett deputy chief executive at the CIOB.
“Make no mistake construction is in a battle with every other sector fighting over the best and the brightest. This conference will dig into the issues and showcase what success employers and clients are having and how construction can stand out as a career. We will be tapping into those who have recently joined the industry to learn from their experiences.”
