Presentation from Chris Williams-Lilley of Champions.com at the annual joint MOD/Industry Support Chain Seminar, Oct 2017, was titled, The 4th Industrial Revolution

........

Chris Williams-Lilley, Managing Director, Principal Consultant, Leadership Champions (UK) Ltd Chris Williams-Lilley is one of those rare individuals who can say he is a consultant, change agent and performance coach and mean it. His consulting business, Leadership Champions (UK), has attracted clients such as Network Rail, Transport for London, MAG Group Airports, and over 30+ other leading prime contracting organizations since starting the business in 2011. He serves on Network Rail’s National Commercial Directors Forum (CDF), as well as being a founder member of the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) Infrastructure Steering Group.

His speaking typically includes five keynotes a year at major conferences, and he has been delivering motivational speeches on strategy execution for European suppliers working in regulated industries for over ten years. Most recently, producing a conference on High Reliability Organisation Principles hosted at ExCel (London) for the construction sector. Having a background in Quality Assurance, Sales and Operations helps!

Chris recently interviewed Sir John Egan on the legacy effect of ‘Constructing Excellence,' which resulted in the ‘reshaping’ of a communications strategy across RICS, ICE and the IET. Presidents of each institution are now implementing a truly aligned strategy to accelerated learning and development opportunities for many 1,000’s of members. I cannot say hand on heart Champions were the catalyst for change, but the gauntlet was picked up by key fellows (including, Stephen Blakey FRICS, CDF Chair, Commercial Project Director, Network Rail IP).

The real challenge is to sustain change…
