Kier Highways & The Collaborative Learning Circle are delivering a clear message that the development of collaboration between supply chain partners and providing opportunities to the next generation of youth into the industry is very much happening.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”

The Collaborative Learning Circle (CLC) is a learning and development forum, initiated within Kier Highways which engages clients and supply chain partners to help transform our industry approach to improving safety, customer service and delivery through innovation and collaboration.

The CLC will also deliver exceptional social value through engagement with OnSide Youth Zones, providing life changing opportunities for disadvantaged young people who do not choose the life they are born into.

At the House of Lords on Wednesday the 31st of October a clear message was delivered during an Afternoon Tea at the invite of The Baroness Helen Newlove, with huge support from colleagues and friends industry wide.

Baroness Newlove, who had her life so sadly and suddenly changed by a significant personal tragedy, introduced the event and is supporting the CLC on both a personal and professional level.

Baroness Newlove was inspired following her own tragic experience to lend a significant hand to improving the quality of life of disadvantaged youths.

Dave Wright of Kier spoke to the room and was humbled by the support the CLC has received in its infancy as an industry changing ideology. Mr Wright spoke passionately and inspirationally about his aim of transforming the group into an instantly recognised & respected, industry-wide tool to provide the platform to take collaborations to the next level.

Other speakers at the event included Martin Duffy of Kier, Nick Hopkinson MBE and Sue Percy of the CIHT.

In his address to the room, the closing words of Mr Wright hit home with everybody present as he boldly concluded:

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”

It appears the time for togetherness is now
