About this event

Using positive and negative examples of engineering design, our speaker offers a commercial manager's view of the technical and commercial interface of under- and over-ground railways, highways and aviation projects.  He examines the commercial consequences of when design goes right and when it goes wrong, stressing the importance of why we should be designing smartly on all future transport mode integration projects.

He looks at the lessons to consider when designing smartly, the challenges to face, and how best to apply learning when delivering solutions.

After the lecture, John will be joined on stage by three additional panellists for a Q&A discussion.
