concert_portraits_-053
In this episode, I am joined by Rennie Dalrymple of Concert; the new name of Bruce Shaw London. In this wide ranging chat, we discuss;
  • Why the change of name and why Concert.
  • How to best deal with the ongoing challenges of Covid.
  • Rennie's thoughts on the future of the office.
  • Why they are pursuing a sensible growth rate and their plans for expanding into Europe.
  • Choosing projects carefully and the danger of taking on very long projects for a small consultancy.
  • The danger of escalating salaries for the industry.
  • Rennie's thoughts on the future of the industry, including MMC and why a focus on Whole Life Cycle costing is critical.
  • Lastly why the industry is still not doing enough to sell itself to those at school and Higher Education age.
