Costain Hosts Fifth Behavioural Management Conference
2 March 2017
Around 140 delegates attended Costain’s fifth Cultural Behavioural Management Conference at Stratford Manor Hotel in February.
This year’s theme, ‘Behaviour for All’, attracted a record number of external clients and representatives from the supply chain, as interest continues to grow for Costain’s world-class accredited CBS programme and the development of the CBM (Cultural Behavioural Management) training; both of which have now been introduced across the construction industry and beyond.
Clients and associates joined Costain’s Behavioural Management Team and other invited speakers to deliver presentations on a variety of themes and subjects; demonstrating how behavioural management techniques are brought to life across a wide range of disciplines including, of course, safety.
Senior Behavioural Management Consultant for Costain, Claire Fryer, said: "To have one of our external clients present at the conference this year; share their experiences, demonstrate what embedding the science has meant to their company, in terms of culture and business performance was fantastic. This really complimented the Costain presentations and the theme of ‘Behaviour for All’.”
Martin Lee, Group SHEQ Manager for Cormac Ltd, said: “The CBM conference is a highly engaging and collaborative environment to share experiences and best practice for behavioural management practices. The content for this year’s event presented a diverse selection of material to stimulate ideas and new approaches to promoting effective behavioural management to benefit the businesses present and I would thoroughly recommend it. I will certainly be attending in the future.”
Bob Duarte, Policy Standards and Culture Manager of EDF Energy, said: “This was a well-structured event with great presentations. I want an invitation to speak next year!”
While Doug Coutts, Managing Director of Via East Midlands Ltd, said: “An excellent conference reminding me of a great deal that I had previously learnt and can take forward as opportunities to embed learning. I look forward to working with Costain’s Behavioural Management team in Via East Midlands in the near future.”
“Applications for delegate places at our annual conference remain high and are growing rapidly among our external clients. Once again we were thrilled to welcome such a widespread audience to this year’s event,” said Costain Director of Behavioural Management, Alan Cheung.
