Mott MacDonald is hosting a series of lunch and learn sessions designed to share knowledge and provide learning opportunities for a variety of industries. The next session is relevant to the enormous changes and improvements we are about to see in the initiation of public infrastructure projects. The recent National Infrastructure Strategy and the changes to the green book are a step in the right direction and the Rail Needs Assessment, published in December presents some interesting ideas as well. This coming year will be exciting in terms of the changes to the industry and we want to share our thinking with you.

This next session is comprised of 2 mini dialogues and discussion based on the above where we are asking:
‘Do we have the ‘right’ to decent transport? And what do Programme managers need to know’ - delivered by Prof. Paul Hammond – Global Practice lead for Economics @ Mott MacDonald
Appraisal of transport projects - Green Book, what has changed - Delivered by Stephen Cox – Technical Director, Business case development @ Mott MacDonald

The sessions are focussed on an audience of Programme and Commercial managers as well as the legal and financial sectors to provide a broader understanding of the topics when assessing the future direction of project delivery.
