The 3-Cs of Top Engineers: Communication with Clients and Collaborators
Communication is the transfer of ideas and, in this seminar, we are exploring the most effective ways to work together to get our jobs done. Emily Hereford, Eamonn Connolly, and Scott Whitebone are will share project team navigation challenges and solutions in a lively panel discussion format. Each panelist brings with them a perspective from a different team player position: Emily, a structural engineer with Stantec, Eamon, a structural engineer with McHugh, and Scott, an architect with Harley Ellis Deveraux. Collaborating with different personalities, listening and addressing others’ concerns, and standing up for your ideas will be at the heart of the discussion. Join us for an engaging discussion about how we can use communication to work more effectively with our clients and collaborators.
