CIOB announces World Quality Day conference
The Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) has announced the first ever World Quality Day Conference. CIOB president Mark Beard will open and close the conference on Thursday 12 November 2020 from 9.30am – 2.00pm GMT as Quality is the focus of Mark’s Presidential year.
World Quality Day (WQD) is celebrated annually on the second Thursday in November to help to raise the profile and highlight the positive impact of quality in organisations. It is a key opportunity for construction to recognise the role that quality plays in building and sustaining trust in the industry and beyond. Quality is a global issue for our industry and as members of the world’s largest professional body for construction management and leadership, we all have a responsibility to work to create a better industry.
As the landscape for construction changes, staying up to date has never been more important. The industry is being reshaped by legislation including the new Building Safety Bill. There is a once in a generation opportunity to change the culture of quality in our industry and regain public trust.
Speakers include Lorna Stimpson, CEO of the Local Authority Building Control, Ann Bentley, Global Director of Rider Levitt Bucknall and member of the Construction Leadership Council, and Geoff Wilkinson, Managing Director of Wilkinson Construction Consultants Limited.
This event will explore what the future might hold for the built environment, the future of construction quality and the possibilities for our homes and places of work.
