‘Minimising your risk’ was the theme at the Civil Contractors workshop last night.
The panel of experts included Clay Baker from ASB, Amanda Douglas from Wynn Williams, James Smith from Crombie Lockwood and our very own Craig Melhuish.
It was a very insightful workshop professionally facilitated by Jeremy Dixon, CEO of Isaac Construction and organised by Kim Masina from Isaac Construction and John Crawley from ASB.
Nexia New Zealand enjoys supporting this organisation, they are truly focused on adding value to their members with workshops like last night, as well as guest speakers and other social functions throughout the year. If you are in the civil or general construction space (large or small), then this organisation is definitely one to consider.
