About this event

Come along to find out how the engineering charity EFOD has raised our awareness of Health Safety and Wellbeing issues. Working in sub-Sahara Africa means we have to take things back to first principles. There is not the same access to skilled labour, plant and materials which means we have to solve problems in different ways, be adaptable and innovative.

The work we do is life changing for the communities in which we work and also for us as construction professionals.

Come and join us for some inspiring tales.

Speakers: Sally Sudworth, Zak Jones, Will Smith, Lucy Monkhouse

Please arrive at 17:45 for 18:30 start.

Organised by Manchester Branch.
