WHY ATTEND?

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could redefine ‘time, cost and quality’ in a way that makes the management of construction projects a completely trusted and fair process for all involved?

Well, believe it or not that idea is very much a work-in-progress, and Willmott Dixon is keen to share some pioneering insights with you over a three-part series of webinars. Willmott Dixon has an idea, which could improve the way we manage quality, demonstrate compliance, and pay our supply chain. Please join us to learn more, feel inspired, and help make change happen for the benefit of everyone.

 

WHAT’S THE IDEA?

Blockchain is a solution that falls into the category of technologies that could, potentially, provide the much-needed catalyst for change in our industry.

The potential for change using blockchain is not that far off, yet surprisingly very few stakeholders in our industry appreciate the potential of what lies around the corner.

Over the three-part series of webinars you will learn about Willmott Dixon’s digital transformation journey so far and what an industry built on blockchain technology could mean in practical terms for your business. We also have some leading experts lined up to give their views on the need for change.

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Leaders in industry, Supply Chain Partners, Construction professionals, Consultants and Designers, Investors, Digital enthusiasts, Change Makers.

Or:

  • People that have never heard of blockchain
  • People that have heard of blockchain but know nothing about it
  • People that understand blockchain but have done nothing about it

Over the series of webinars, we are confident you will develop the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to take the conversation back to your Board Room!

Event 2: Building with Blockchain – How do you build a blockchain? 21st May from 10:00 – 12:00

This webinar explores the steps you need to take to build and validate a blockchain solution. We will take a deeper, more technical look at blockchain technology and how this is being applied to the real-world concept we introduced at Event 1. We will introduce you to our ‘7 Pillar’ concept for developing a blockchain solution and you will hear the views and thoughts of our collaboration supply chain partners. We will also share more case study examples from across the industry.

Event 3: Building with Blockchain – What comes next? 17th June from 10:00 – 12:00

Taking the learning from the previous two webinars, we will complete the vision for the Blockchain system. The session will include one of the key aspects of a private Blockchain; the legal and governance considerations. We will also introduce you to Willmott Dixons latest service offering, Sunesis, and explain how digital technology and innovation (including blockchain) is being used to create real customer value.
