Mr Mike Schneider, Immediate Past President of the American Concrete Institute and Senior Vice President and Chief People Officer at Baker Concrete Constructions is our first key note presenter.

Ms Louise Adams, Regional Director (VIC, SA & ACT) with Aurecon and Executive Director on the Aurecon Group Board, is our next key note presenter.
