Synopsis

What does the e-business mean for human relationships? As we increasingly communicate using electronic means, what effect is this likely to have given the greater percentage of communication is said to be ‘non-verbal’?

Tony will explore the journey in understanding team dynamics and human behaviour with emphasis on their importance in structuring an e-practice. He explains the use of pyschometric testing and its value in developing effective virtual teams whilst preserving a working chemistry between the personalities. Each team member is encouraged to understand themselves, their strengths and weaknesses and how the world sees them. He explores the construct of an effective team and the potential pitfalls in blindly constructing a team without understanding how the individual operates. In an age where individuals are choosing more and more where and when they work are we destined to return to the farmer’s fields, where crop harvesters chose, as individuals, what fields they worked and for how long?

Speaker: Tony Parasram BEng (Hons) CEng FICE FIStructE | Free4m consulting

Following the global financial crash of 2008 Tony found himself in a profession shrinking in opportunities locally and abroad. He founded Free4m Consulting in 2009, in the UK, with the intent to do things differently. Whilst existing practices have a base office with national or international satellite offices Free4m is an e-consultancy with no formal offices delivering civil and structural design, architectural design, interior design and asset management consultancy via a team of 20 across 6 countries. The teams work in real time with projects located in Europe, Caribbean, Africa and New Zealand. Tony sits on the IStructE Structural Futures Committee.
