Richard Rooley (FCIBSE and Past President ASHRAE) and Alex MacLaren (RIBA) presented a paper to the CIBSE/ASHRAE Technical Symposium in Dublin on 4th April. The presentation was awarded the prize for ‘most effective delivery of material’ over the whole conference, a Technical Symposium Award voted for at the close of the event, by all participants.
The Technical Symposium Award “recognises the presentation that most effectively delivered its key messages. It is a mark of success in clearly communicating ideas to others in a constrained format”.
Richard and Alex were delighted, and not a little surprised, to win! We hope that this send a clear message- the Teambuild Competition is about great communication across disciplines. Our joint presentation illustrated this through the evidence covered in our peer-reviewed paper, but also ‘live’- the verbal presentation passed back and forth between Richard and Alex and was a direct demonstration of the great Teamwork we believe is so important.
Thanks CIBSE for agreeing with us!- and also for a really great conference. So many interesting papers illustrating innovation and optimism for the future- and highlighting the key role our industry has to play.
