Network and listen to speakers from across the industry

Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month, with the exception of August when there is no meeting and December when it's the second Wednesday in the month.

Our free-to-join Meetings are held on the third Wednesday of every month (barring August), and are a great opportunity to learn about subjects pertinent to the construction and associated industries.

Our meetings provide:

  • The ability to network with like-minded professionals
  • Most allow a virtual registration via Zoom
  • Varied topics from the construction industry
  • Ability to ask questions directly to the speaker
  • Diverse and interactive formats – attendees can have a go
  • Introducing you to specialist speakers and often innovative products and ideas

Plus they are free to join.

The Next Monthly Meeting

Wednesday 17th July at 9.30am

Rakesh Hirani of Navatech

Navatech Group are driving innovation through digital transformation for the construction industry.  Navatech have recently been chosen as part of the HSE safety accelerator programme working with a range of companies including Ferrovial, on a Health and Safety AI-driven chatbot platform that digitises health and safety management in high-risk industries. 

Rob Foxton of Aerocom

Aerocom are an international supplier of a new fire suppression system called “MAUS Stixx Pro V1” which uses potassium radicals to interrupt chemical combustion resulting in the very effective extinguishing effect using a very small, easily fitted suppression box.  

We believe this is a new cost effective and versatile solution to electrical cabinet fire suppression and a very interesting alternative for consideration by the construction industry. 

Start time: 9am arrival for 9.30am start or Zoom waiting room opens at 9.15am

Location: At our Chertsey Centre (John Ryder Training Centre, St Anns Road, Chertsey, KT16 9DG) or on Zoom.
