ACE launches new development seminar series

ACE is to launch a number of business-focused courses and seminars that will be presented by our members, affiliates and external service providers, writes ACE chief operating officer Anil Iyer.

These will cover the topics of legal, contracts, finance, insurance, business development and improvement, HR procedural, personal development, management and leadership subjects.

Many of the courses and seminars will be free to staff from ACE member companies, but some will involve a specially negotiated course fee. And some will be primarily targeted toward certain parts of ACE’s membership such as SME’s and Progress Network.

The first seminar relates to the changes in procurement regulations and the implications as a consequence of recent EU directives, and will be presented by ACE affiliate BLM as part of the SME Forum event being held on 2 September 2014. This will be followed by a training course on FIDIC contracts on 30 September and 1 October presented by tutors from the specialist training provider European Construction Ventures [ECV].
