Invited speakers

Neill Pawsey

Neill started his career in the British Army and after leaving in 1989 he began training for a career in the Construction and Civil Engineering industry. After spending a few years working as a Field Engineer and Site Manager on Coastal and Inland Flood Protection schemes, he developed a passion for IT and innovative technologies and joined Jackson Civil Engineering’s IT department in 1998 progressing to become their Head of Information Technology.

In 2008 he took the opportunity to travel and work overseas with a division of the Construction Industry Institute (CII) based at the University of Austin in Texas. During this time, he led a number of technology pilots and proof on concepts on large Capital Project Programmes in Europe, Russia, the Middle East, and Asia. He returned to the UK in 2014 to work on the Crossrail Infrastructure Project in London as a Senior Project Information Manager and more recently worked for EDF Energy as their Head of Information Management on the Hinkley Point C Nuclear Power Station construction programme.

In 2019 Neill started working part time for PCSG (Professional Construction Strategies Group) consultancy based in South London and has been supporting a national BIM programme for the Ministry of Environment in Lithuania and is currently supporting Amey Consulting UK (part of the Spanish Infrastructure Services Group Ferrovial) as their Programme Director for their Digital Engineering Transformation Programme.

Neill lives in UK with his wife and family and in his spare time volunteers to support various charitable organisations. He also enjoys running and exploring the countryside near his home in Suffolk.

Zeljko Djuretic

As a Director for Bentley Education Zeljko looks after academic institutions for Bentley Systems Inc. He is bringing together Industry and Academia so that teaching becomes more relevant to the industry needs while Academia gets better insight into Industry directions. Over the last 20 years he has been involved in a number of successful initiatives worldwide to advance technical education, from secondary schools to post-graduate studies.

BrunoCaires

Bruno is the operations director, co-founder and partner of BIMMS. Also, Bruno is a non-exec board member to IberD (European Architecture & Engineering Consultancy), and is an observer to the board of another two firms associated to engineering and IT.

He is a member of the national engineering council and has a MEng degree in engineering from University of Minho in Portugal. During his professional career he has had further training namely BSI BIM Master Classes 2015 in London, UK.

Over the last years Bruno has had an international experience on projects located in the UK, central and western Europe assuming operational project roles such as Design Manager and/or BIM Manager or advisory BIM consultant. During these years he has extended his expertise in the areas of project management, design co-ordination, BIM integrated applicability and engineering.

He is also a lecturer of the Portuguese national BIM course held at the engineering council since its conception in 2014, where he had the opportunity of assisting with its foundation. He is an invited lecturer and mentor of the “International Master BIM Manger” online course held at ZIGURAT Global Institute of Technology since 2016.
