Start time 1.00pm AEDT.

Infrastructure Thought Leaders Series: Stimulus and Recovery Funding - A Project Owner Perspective

After adjusting to the drastic impacts of COVID-19 on society and the economy, significant investments are flowing into the infrastructure industry as governments turn their focus to economic recovery.

In our previous webinar we explored how you can utilize technology to be ‘shovel ready’ and ensure you can access relevant government stimulus funds. This time we will focus on how project owners can best use these stimulus funds to deliver successful capital projects. How can you address the challenge of maximizing the return on investment for every stimulus dollar spent while managing and controlling time, cost, scope and risk?

Learn how to overcome these challenges, and the pitfalls to avoid along the way, as we deep dive into the best available solutions for Portfolio, Program and Project management.



  • How to maximise and demonstrate your return on investment when using stimulus funds
  • How technology can provide the standardisation, connectivity and visibility which is key for successful portfolio, program and project management
  • Common risks facing infrastructure projects supported by stimulus funds
