Project Management Talks

The COVID-19 pandemic caught businesses around the world off-guard and has presented project managers with "unknown unknowns".

Engineering Talks

For all the changes in engineering the basic design processes have remained the same since the time of Ancient Egypt. However, ‘open innovation’ is playing a major role in what engineering looks like in the future. Embracing transformation in Egypt’s engineering community will be key to future construction developments, including, computer simulation, younger engineers joining the workforce and developing engagement models to move from a cost based to a value based approach.

The Engineering Talks will focus on the opportunities engineering brings to the industry while balancing low cost and fast delivery of engineering projects with sustainability, safety of the workforce and innovation and design.
