IPMA SIG Megaproject CEO Series with Mark Wild, CEO of Crossrail – a great success!

IPMA and UCL welcomed Mark Wild, CEO of Crossrail, for his Global Keynote in the Megaproject CEO Series. Mark shared fantastic messages and strategies on leadership, integration, and transparency! The event gathered more than 100 people from 23 countries!

Crossrail is the most significant addition to London’s transport network in a generation, increasing central London capacity by 10% and transforming how Londoners and visitors move across the capital. The new railway will bring an extra 1.5 million people within 45 minutes of central London, and more than 200 million passengers are expected to use it every year.

According to IPMA VP Profession Development, Dr Mladen Vukomanović: “The IPMA Megaproject SIGs are the way to share insights and good practices between project professionals. Today we saw on a real mega programme example how digital transformation and digitization in megaprojects should be equally considered as technical aspects of tunnelling (e.g., boring machines.) Also, when projects fail, it destroys trust and confidence. Therefore, the new leaders should be transformative, lead by the commitment and not by ego, and move from the house of risk to the house of intervention. A truly great presentation by Mark Wild, the former CEO of Crossrail Ltd. Looking forward to our next Megaproject webinar in the CEO series.”
