Join us as we host Eric Peissel, Global Director Transport and Infrastructure at WSP, at our next Melbourne Leaders' lunch.

Eric will discuss how innovation is bringing positive change to transport and infrastructure planning, design, construction and operations in international mega cities – and how that can be applied to the Australian landscape.
