A consulting engineer’s role is crucial in providing a balanced and well-administered contract, and I believe training will enhance the capability and capacity of the engineers which will in turn, impact the overall industry globally.
Participating as a FIDIC volunteer has allowed me to shape our industry and to learn from the best. I have found friends, mentors and business partners with whom my company has been able to successfully conduct business in Poland and abroad.
Lifelong learning is the only way for a professional to stay updated, remain competitive and ingenious. This process of becoming a “trainer” or “tutor” is a significant and honourable step.
Since the beginning of my involvement as a Future Leader in FIDIC activities, Future Leaders have played a very important role both with regards to influencing the consulting engineering industry, but also in having a strong voice on issues that could impact the future of our industry and the sustainable development of the world. Simply put, the ability to engineer a brighter future adapted to the needs of the next generation.
In my 40 years as a consulting engineer, my training and experience in using the FIDIC suite of contracts have helped me in the efficient management of contracts which have resulted in successful project delivery. Dispute avoidance is also among the learnings and best practices from the use of FIDIC Contracts.
