The Australia – UK Chamber is delighted to announce the launch of our new series ‘Rethink Reset’ for 2021/22 which focuses on the paradigm changes that are taking place across key industries in Australia and the UK.

To accompany the upcoming release of our first ‘Rethink Reset’ report, we are pleased to invite you to this webinar on ‘Building Back Better in Infrastructure.’ Exploring how key players are changing their behaviours across the infrastructure cycle from planning to procurement and design to delivery, this session will feature experts from Lendlease, KPMG and NAB on:

  • How will COVID and trends like remote working change the way we design and use infrastructure?
  • What types of infrastructure are likely to attract investment and finance in the future?
  • What actions should Government take to help us build back better in infrastructure?
  • How significant is sustainability to the strategic future of global infrastructure?
  • How will the sector’s workforce and practices change in the future?
