7. The digital future of the professions
In this wide-ranging discussion about the recent history of the construction sector, Paul Wilkinson highlights the productivity gains and breaking down of silos which have occurred as a result of digitisation. What can the construction sector learn from other industries? What are the barriers to change? What are the impacts of different technologies and digital tools?

He was head of communications at a construction Software-as-a-Service start-up for 10 years, and since 2009 has been an independent technology analyst, PR consultant, journalist and blogger. He is an authority on the use of construction collaboration technology platforms, SaaS and related developments in fields such as BIM, mobile technologies and social media.
