Mott MacDonald is pleased to present the third in our series of Lunch and Learn sessions; Fast tracking Project Delivery – Consenting Skills for Project Managers. Ruth Jackson (Director of RJP – a town planning practice based in Manchester) and Adam Richmond (Associate, Mott MacDonald) will be sharing their experiences of the good, the bad and the ugly of where consents meets project management, and how best to utilise consents knowledge and skills to fast track delivery. Adam and Ruth have worked together in integrated project teams for the last seven years across a number of different projects and have first-hand experience of the benefits that can be delivered through collaborating with consents specialists from early in project development and throughout the project lifecycle.
