Graham Olver, Chief Operating Officer, WYG, will deliver a lecture to international Master's students at the School of Construction Management and Engineering, University of Reading, on Wednesday 11 February as part of the MSc Module International Construction.
The talk will focus on “Evolving the traditional engineering consulting business to compete overseas,” reviewing how WYG has managed to export its expertise abroad successfully, diversified its range of services and become one of the leading consultancies for International Development.
Graham will also cover his role as Chairman of British Expertise, a UK private sector organisation for British companies offering professional services internationally.
80 students from over 20 countries will be attending, and, over the course of the one week programme, will listen to speakers from Aon, EBRD, University of Hong Kong and Mott Macdonald, in addition to WYG.
This is part of our ongoing commitment to supporting career development and education in all the specialist areas that we operate in.
Graham’s lecture fee will be donated to the Royal British Legion.
