The Inaugural Event

This first Young Professionals in Construction event was held in the sixth floor of Quartermile One, Edinburgh. Any nervousness held by the committee, prior to the launch, proved to be unfounded as just over 120 construction professionals attended, to network and engage with YPiC as an event.

The Committee were delighted to have Chris Stewart, CEO of The Chris Stewart Group as our inaugural key speaker. On the night Chris addressed the room on a series of topics, opening on the importance of the generation represented and how they can be activated through the forum YPiC offers. Chris went to discuss his developments at Advocates Close, St Andrews Sq and George Sq, in Glasgow. Additionally, Chris described his role with the Scottish Property Federation and the importance of challenging ourselves in our career. 

The Q+A session proved popular, with Chris being challenged on a range of topics, from investment risk to historic building restoration.
