Leadership and Strategy
Help move your career to the next level with BILT
One of the things that has long set BILT apart from other technology events, is our classes in Business, Leadership & Strategy and Change Management. We realise that leading delivering teams and implementing new technologies takes a much wider skill set than just tech tools and that often there can be limited opportunities for these kind of career developing skills in your day to day job working in design, engineering or construction – whatever your role.
Take the opportunity whilst at BILT to develop your leadership skills and knowledge with a range of classes from experts in the fields of communication, psychology and business as well as with leaders in our technical fields sharing their expertise developed throughout their own careers.
