Common Ground: Shared Language

Monday, 16 October 2017 at 1:00PM - 3:30PM
Riddel Hall, Stranmillis Rd, Belfast BT9 5EE, UK
RTPI Northern Ireland

RTPI Northern Ireland invites you to join us to explore the power of communication and the need for greater mutual understanding across professions. The nature of education, training and professional practice has an impact on professional understanding and can be critical to success in many projects.

Are architects and planners really from different planets? Does everyone really understand what’s expected of them? Who is best placed to help the client understand the processes and why they may or may not have the final say?

The Panel will be co-chaired by Beverley Clyde, RTPI NI Chair & Director of Futurescape Planning and Dr Roisin Willmott, RTPI Director of Northern Ireland.

Our Panellists include:

  • The Client Perspective: Anita Conway, Director of Development, Radius Housing
  • The Heritage Perspective: Kerrie Sweeney, CEO, Titanic Foundation
  • The Architect Perspective: Joan McCoy, Director, White Ink Architects
  • The Planning Consultant Perspective: Helen Harrison, Director, Juno Planning
  • The Landscape Architect Perspective: Andrew Haley, Chair of Ministerial Advisory Group for Architecture and the Built Environment
  • Decision-Maker Perspective: Scott Symington, Assistant Director, Department for Infrastructure
  • The Designer Perspective: Carole-Anne Davies, CEO, Design Commission for Wales
