Dame Judith Hackitt confirmed as Keynote Speaker at CABE Conference

The Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) has today announced that Dame Judith Hackitt will be providing the keynote speech at its Annual Conference and Exhibition in October.

A chemical engineer, Dame Judith is the author of Building a Safer Future: Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety. The review was commissioned by Government following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire on the 14th June 2017. Known as the Hackitt Review, its aim was to address and explore regulatory bodies and the construction industry, and to make recommendations on the future regulatory system.

Dame Judith is the former Chair of the UK Health and Safety Executive and is currently Chair of EEF, The Manufacturer’s Organisation.

Dr Gavin Dunn, CEO of CABE, said:

“Dame Judith is the author of one of the most significant reports published in recent times that will have an effect on our industry, not just now, but for future generations. We are delighted to welcome Dame Judith to deliver the keynote speech at our Annual Conference and Exhibition, and to offer our members and other industry professionals the opportunity to hear from her directly on such important issues.”

This conference and exhibition will take place on the 4th and 5th October 2018, at Chesford Grange Kenilworth, Warwickshire. For information about attending the event please visit: www.cbuilde.com/conference/
