Joining us from the UK, Mark Farmer is an internationally acclaimed thought leader on the transformation of the built environment.
Mark authored the Farmer Review, an influential 2016 independent government review of the UK’s construction labour model entitled 'Modernise or Die.'
In this session, Mark will talk us through the four key drivers of change that are transforming the business and design of architecture and the built environment around the globe. This session is a must for current and future leaders who are eager to ensure their firm remains ahead of the curve and relevant. These drivers of change will impact business models, skills, service lines and more, across our profession and the industry.
