Extending a customer’s engineering capability through an innovative partnership

Julian Gill, QuEST Global.

In the competitive markets of today, an intelligent approach to ensure competency can meet the peaks and troughs is that of ‘partnering’. Collaboration, in this context, requires partnering behaviours to be at the forefront of the relationship, sharing needs, opportunities and technology roadmaps. This requires a high degree of trust from all those involved.

The recent pandemic cannot be ignored, specifically the impact on the role and importance of the contingent workforce and the significant changes associated with more team members working from home.

At the heart of QuEST’s strategy is working with its customers to develop centres of excellence. These can provide the agreed strategic capability to meet their needs in addition to the more common tactical goal of providing additional capacity to facilitate smoother resource management for the lead contractors.

Julian Gill has over 20 years of professional experience in major infrastructure, with a background in safety critical systems. He is currently responsible for the Rail Signalling and Smart Mobility vertical at QuEST Global.

In his presentation, Julian will discuss these two points and explore the benefits and challenges associated with their success.
