Anglia Ruskin University hosts Chelmsford speakers
The Chelmsford Novus committee has continued its work supporting the future leaders of construction by delivering a spring series of targeted events at Anglia Ruskin University.
The series began with an introduction to the CIOB hosted by a panel of speakers from Novus and guest speaker Eleni Randle, director of Eldnar Consultancy. They discussed the importance of joining a professional body and its positive impact on an individual’s career journey.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, Novus also held a Women in the Built Environment event. A panel of female speakers, led by Novus chair Alina Grigoruta, shared thought-provoking insights into their experiences in the industry and advised women on starting their pathway.
Finally, to raise awareness and understanding after a difficult year, they discussed mental health in construction. The event was supported by CIOB staff, Novus Committee member and chartered construction manager Craig Shaw, and Bill Hill, CEO at the Lighthouse Club.
They had a very open discussion about the impact that mental health has on people’s lives, but the positive steps the industry is taking to tackle the issue.
