Urbano networking breakfasts give company directors, business owners, entrepreneurs, corporates, professionals and creatives across a range of sectors a chance to make connections, build associations, and learn from some of the UK's most informed and successful entrepreneurs, business people and cross-sector specialists.

Urbano speaker breakfasts are stripped down conferences, featuring great speakers, allowing attendees to discuss the issues featured in the guest presentation and plenty of opportunity to network with the speaker and the other attendees from all sizes and types of companies, from PLCs to SMEs.

Blockchain, the smart/digital ledger is the buzz technology for 2018, but which first came into being as part of the development of cryptocurrencies such as Blockchain (and first showcased at an Urbano Finance event in 2015).

This event will explore Blockchain’s implications for the Build sector, especially when looking at BIM and the digitisation of construction. However, the use of smart ledgers for transactions will have uses for companies across our other business Communities, such as Finance and Media, as well as for companies in Tech looking for new opportunities. Urbano is actively diverse and has always encouraged those from other sectors to meet those in Build and beyond.

Our guest speaker Volker Buscher is a Director in Arup’s Consulting practice and leads its Information and Communications Technology business. He will explore the impact of Blockchain across construction following on from Arup's Foresight team's recent report into Blockchain.
