On 17 November 2011, in London, we will be holding a seminar/workshop focused on refurbishment, retrofitting and the Green Deal, with particular emphasis on residential premises and the opportunities for micro, small to medium-sized businesses in the architecture, engineering and construction sectors.
As usual for Be2camp events, one of the key areas will be about technologies, including how firms can use social tools and techniques to help find opportunities, win work and deliver successful projects.
The event is jointly sponsored by East London Business Place and Able Power.
The list of speakers is being developed, but so far we have:
- Martin Brown (Fairsnape Consulting) - Overview of Green Deal
- Hayley Fry (Federation of Master Builders) - The Green Deal: how can small firms get involved?
- Vassos Chrysostomou (Construct CO2) - "Green Deal CO2: how can we measure monitor and address carbon reduction through Eco refit?"
