Speakers included Julia Prescot, chief strategy officer at Meridiam and a National Infrastructure Commissioner, Hannah Vickers, CEO of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering; and Selma Salkovic, an associate at Aviva Investors. The discussion was moderated by Rosie Hughes, innovation lead at AECOM and a member of the YPP.
