Profile Information

About Me
I am a PR professional, marketing and social media practitioner who has worked in the architecture, engineering and construction market since 1987, with more than a decade's experience in construction ICT.

Until May 2009, I worked for BIW Technologies, one of the UK's leading providers of SaaS-based construction collaboration technologies - AKA 'project extranets' (before that, I ran my own PR and marketing business following 11 years with the Halcrow group and Tarmac Professional Services). I wrote the UK's first guide to these technologies, published in 2005, and have been involved in various IT related initiatives by, among others, the Network of Construction Collaboration Technology Providers and Constructing Excellence.

I also write about AEC technologies, particularly in Software-as-a-Service, on my blog at At BIW, I set up the company's intranet and wiki, started a blog and introduced RSS feeds, Twitter and YouTube into our communications. More recently, I started a new PR/marketing/Web2.0/AEC blog.

With Martin Brown and others, I helped co-found what we know as be2camp in early 2008 and as part of the team of 'unorganisers' we have, I hope, risen to the challenge, learning much as we go along.

Be2Awards takes a 2014 break

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 11:03 0 Comments

The Be2Awards will not be held in 2014.

We (Martin Brown and I) had a long discussion about the programme, and about our respective workloads (the Awards take up a significant amount of time to organise). From a purely practical point of view, we decided that we just didn't have the bandwidth to make…

Hi, Paul

I was just looking at the Natural Resource Charter homepage and it has (scroll down) a Find Us on Facebook plugin. 

My work in Dundee has taken on an economic development angle once again (hence a link to the built environment alongside other aspects), where the extractive industires are the driver for such development.  There are (thus far) three Ning sites that I am interested in linking to from our website once I have a Resources page up and running there.  These 3 ning sites are: Be2Camp, Gender in Value Chains, and GOXI,, which is Governance in Value Chains.

Anyway, my question is whether there is HTML embed code that I can use for Ning sites, starting off with be2camp, that does the same thing as the Find Us on Facebook plugin at

Is this something that you can advise on, please?

Many thanks

Hi Paul,

Thanks for your warm welcome, I also enjoyed our meeitng a couple of weeks ago, and hope there will be opportunities to collaborate in the future. Unfortunately I am not able to make the next event, but will be at the event in Birmingham if at all possible - it is in my diary.

Hi Paul I missed Be2campEast. Are there any similar meetings planned for May ?

Hi Paul
I will add my photo soon. Any upcoming events I might be interested in attending ?

At 14:24 on December 18, 2009, Paul Wilkinson said…
Definitely. The life-blood of Be2camp comes from two sources: online and face-to-face - with the latter feeding the former. Would be good to have you involved with our event plans for early 2010 (maybe come and speak at our February SMW event - just provisionally announced?) or maybe look at doing a Be2camp/Reorb in Scotland?
At 14:18 on December 18, 2009, Tom Inglis said…
Thanks for the welcome Paul! We're really keen on building lots of features into Reorb to encourage sustainable development / redevelopment of commercial properties. Maybe we could have a chat in the new year about that and about running a joint web event?

Hi Paul,

How are you? It is really great to see such nice words on my wall. Many thanks for your kind greetings. That is very nice of you!

Sorry for the late reply, has been quite busy meeting several deadlines at this moment. Just curious, who are the main populations of Be2Camp, are they all architects, Construction Consultants, IT experts, Academics of architectual or others? Is it only a networking online group for AEC professionals to know each other, or do we hold regular online forum to discuss various opportunities?

Sorry to ask so many questions, hope you don't mind.^_^

Your early reply and warmhearted help will be highly appreciated.

All the best and take care,

Christina Yan Zhang^_^

Hi Paul I think that would be a splendid idea. Shall we discuss by phone? Or even in a coffee bar somewhere? 07866 673365 any time today would suit. Cheers N

Thanks Paul - I think it all looks really interesting!
