Recovery from the global pandemic; the impact of accelerated megatrends
Mike will provide his perspective of the impact of the global health crisis and other megatrends on businesses in the infrastructure sector - particularly on how a global engineering, management and development consultancy is using their purpose to make a positive difference. In this he will consider resilience to future pandemics and the impact of climate change, the energy transition, responses to inequality and the pace and scale of digitalisation.
