      Yesterday, I had the honor of actively participating in The Architects Forums in London, collaborating with fellow architects and engaging with top-tier partners from architectural manufacture & supplyThe highlight for me was the RIBA-approved CPD session on building a sustainable future. As an architect, integrating sustainability into our designs is a mission close to my heart. It was a remarkable experience.

        I wanted to reach out and say how brilliant the experience was. The (Sustainability) CPD was incredibly valuable. The introductions were fun (and equally important - relevant). You've created a really great format and it was a huge pleasure to take part. Thank you very much for the invite.

          I have found the Design Innovation Forum Events to be a highly worth while Business Development Activity, so much so that I have made the event a part of my marketing budget at two companies that I have represented. The level of Specifer attending, has been key to the success of the initiative, and I look forward to continuing my relationship with Mike and his team.
