Introducing DBEI Insight

The official launch of our newest offering DBEI Insight is here!

What is DBEI Insight? 
A twice-weekly webinar series that will focus on a different overarching theme every 2 weeks. Each webinar in this program is complimentary for everyone to watch live AND for 7 days following the stream date. After this time recordings will be available via the DBEI Community platform – a part of our soon to be released membership model. (more details coming soon!)

Theme 1: Distributed Teams
Whether it’s working from multiple offices, working remotely, or working from home, distributed teams offer special challenges of management, communication, coordination, and technological support. From delivering projects on time and on budget to preserving business continuity, and from small organizations to international firms, the need to have the right information from the right people at the right time to make the best decisions is universal. In this series we’ll look at the cultures, technologies, and professional practices that make distributed teams not just work but thrive when they take advantage of the best talent wherever it needs to be in a changed working environment. We’ll look at the implications and opportunities arising from COVID-19 prevention in the workplace, from space occupation and office redesign to permanent changes in commercial real estate management and work culture.

Sound interesting? Check out the sessions below. If the LIVE time doesn’t suit you, register to the session and watch the recording at any point over the 7 days following for complimentary access.

COVID-19 Update

20th May 2020

DBEI has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. While some parts of our society are beginning to open in baby-steps, none of us know how the situation will develop over the coming months. As such, DBEI has now made the decision to postpone all our 2020 events to 2021 as the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. For new details on each region please visit our event pages. We have also sent communications to all registered attendees, speakers or sponsors for all of our 2020 events.

In the interim, DBEI will be launching several exciting virtual events and webinars in 2020 to continue to deliver the same expertise, insights and knowledge to the AEC industry during these uncertain times. We also have some other exciting initiatives we are working on to continue to provide value to our community, which we look forward to sharing with you all shortly.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.

If you have any concerns or questions about our events please email us at info@dbei.org
