Science fiction becomes science fact

A world-leading futurist and author believes it is “time for transformation” in the engineering and construction industry. Gerd Leonhard, who delivered the keynote address at GRAHAM’s Annual Group Conference, stressed that incremental innovation was not enough as we approach “the cusp of the fifth industrial revolution”.

The German born, Zurich based, expert, with global clients including Google, Microsoft and YouTube, turned traditional thinking on its head over the course of an absorbing hour-long presentation entitled ‘The need for change. Opportunities and challenges for the next 10 years’. Gerd was speaking to over 120 GRAHAM delegates from across the UK and Ireland on Thursday 26th April at the Slieve Donard Hotel.

Coinciding with the launch of our fresh new brand, the Conference was the perfect platform to celebrate GRAHAM’s continued growth, to share the insights behind our collective success and to discuss the wider challenges facing the industry.
