Hear from Roy WilsherChair of the UK National Fire Chiefs Council as he outlines what remediation steps are being taken to implement effective fire protection and risk mitigation strategies that are looking to be adopted both here in Australia and in the UK. This offers our delegates the opportunity to gain valuable insights into how to navigate future regulatory change.

  • Hon Karen Andrews MP, Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Australian Federal Government
  • Gary Strong, Global Building Standards Director, Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors; Chair, International Fire Safety Standards Coalition (UK)
