How Collaboration Can Influence Government Policy and Decisions: The Construction Industry Story  

  • Tristan Moseley (Executive Director – Legal & General Governance and Training Master Builders Victoria)
  • Michael Paynter (Principal Consultant, Peregrine Industrial)

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the constantly changing Government policies seriously impacted several industries, particularly the Construction industry. In this presentation we will hear how—for the first the first time—the major players in the Construction industry came together to ensure the future prosperity of the industry. Delegates will learn how the traditional foes of employer associations and unions collaborated for real change. You’ll understand how this came about, the lessons learnt, and how all associations can develop a more collaborative model. 

This panel will be highly interactive, with plenty of time for delegates to share their stories of collaboration, particularly in dealing with the affects of the COVID-19 pandemic.
