Topic: Technology Disruption and Infrastructure Assets
L.E.K. Consulting’s Future Transport Series returns in 2019. Across four major cities over four weeks, a series of special guests from across the transport industry will examine the impact of new mobility on infrastructure investment and strategies for commercial success in the face of technology disruption.
The panel discussion and Q&A will be led by Simon Barrett (L.E.K. Partner), George Woods (L.E.K. Partner), Mark Streeting (L.E.K. Partner) and Natasha Santha (L.E.K. Principal). Chatham house rules will apply to facilitate open dialogue between participants and guest panellists.
