Fostering a sustainable construction sector: the NSW Government Action Plan

Online registration for this event has closed.
Please email to see if places are still available.
 
The NSW Government Construction Leadership Group (CLG), a forum of leaders from all the key NSW Government agencies engaged in the delivery of the large, long term pipeline of infrastructure investment in NSW, has been established to drive reform across government in the development, procurement and delivery of infrastructure and building projects. In June 2018, the CLG published the NSW Government Action Plan which recognises that the NSW Government can only achieve its infrastructure objectives in partnership with the private sector.
Sonya Campbell will discuss the work being done by the CLG to turn the 10 commitments in the Action Plan into a program of specific measures to be rolled out progressively by the CLG, including development of the NSW Infrastructure Pipeline and Portal, Procurement Method Guidelines, Guidance on Security for Construction Projects and Interactive Tendering Process Guidelines.

Building Networks that work

Networking is made up of more than just a string of contacts. You need a plan with a specific focus that will help you pursue the kind of relationships that move you closer to your objectives. There is also no one size fits all approach – everyone has a personal style so therefore you need to design an approach that will work for you.
This seminar will be conducted by Sue-Ella Prodonovich, one of Australia's leading advisors on business development and marketing for professional services.
