Delegates having built a clear and validated understanding of the user’s challenges throughout the day, and using the Big idea Vignette technique, IBM will enable each group to rapidly brainstorm a breadth of possible ideas.
This part of the event is not broadcast mode – it is about delegates posing their questions and challenges. Paul Wilkinson will collect the questions throughout the day and Anne Kemp and Bhupinder Singh will provide delegates with answers and recommendations they seek.
Paul Wilkinson runs a niche consultancy, pwcom, specialising in technology (particularly construction software applications, SaaS, BIM, mobile) and public relations, marketing and social media – mainly for businesses working in the architecture, engineering, construction (AEC) and property sectors.
Anne Kemp, Chair of the UK BIM Alliance (and part of many other organisations and industry bodies too) will be conducting an open and transparent conversation with the audience in the room ; this is your chance to grill the person closest to the centre of the digital engineering transition, about developing standards, her thoughts about the future, how to ensure that ethics are a part of engineering decisions, and how we can all can adopt a digital approach to better design, build, operate, and integrate our infrastructure.
