    Infrastructure panel: Fact or fiction— who is setting the direction for the industry?

    By Larry McGrath Managing Director, Rainhill & Non-Executive Director, Committee for Sydney

    Infrastructure bodies are advising governments but what is their advice to industry for operationalising infrastructure strategies? Should industry be responsible for setting their own direction? In this session, we look at the findings and desired outcomes of the Australian Infrastructure Plan. We examine the key recommendations and strategic initiatives that can be implemented across infrastructure projects and the construction companies responsible for delivering them, such as: 

    • Ensuring industry growth through collaboration 

    • Adopting and embedding sustainability targets and principals 

    • Creating a more diverse and inclusive culture 

    • Addressing issues of concerns in relation to global supply chain and material demand 

    • Supporting workforce diversity and wellbeing through cultural change 

    Panellists include:
    Simon Draper Chief Executive Officer, Infrastructure NSW
    Cressida Wall Chief Executive Officer, Office of Projects Victoria
    Joe Barr Chief Executive Officer, John Holland Group
    Romilly Madew AO Chief Executive Officer, Infrastructure Australia
    Moderated by:
    Larry McGrath Managing Director, Rainhill & Non-Executive Director, Committee for Sydney
