    Leading Project Teams, Emerging Technologies, and Smart Design and Technology

    Sep 25, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)

    Speaker: Tom Conway

    Bio: Thomas G. Conway, PE is owner of Conway Diversified Services, advising and assisting companies in the areas of: 1) proposal preparation, execution and protests; 2) sensor expertise across a wide range of phenomenology and applications including surveillance and physical security; and 3) Program Management and Leadership. He is a retired US Army civilian with more than thirty (30) years of experience in the following areas: Program Management (PM) running large projects in direct support of deployed forces in Iraq and Afghanistan; Chairing Source Selection Evaluation Boards for awarding government contracts; research and development with patents in Infrared (IR) technology; and other activities including media relations and special studies for senior Army leadership. He is a past president and currently on the board of the Virginia Society of Professional Engineers (VSPE).

    Description: I have led large, multi-million dollar projects for the Army that fit under Leading Project Teams including one where we had 90 days to link sensors together in Iraq that covers both technical management as well as personnel management--and most important, success. Another topic may be presented under emerging technologies having to do with Infrared (IR) technology, use, and image interpretation. I have patents in IR technology and have seen first-hand that engineers still do not fully understand how to interpret IR imagery and the nuances that can help with characterizing the buildings, land and other things they may be imaging. I may also fit under Smart Design and Technology since I have experience with a wide range UAV/drone-mounted sensors and I can talk to their use within a broader context beyond IR to include RADAR, LIDAR and other bands. These I can easily cast into a context that all engineering and even land surveyor disciplines can appreciate and make use of.

    Lastly, I have a novel/unique talk on how the US Army and NASCAR are the same when it comes to employing sensors that may be useful for a lunch talk. It is both technologically informative as well as entertaining.

    Clients are from Venus, Consultants from Mars: A Guide to Effective Management of Consultants

    Nov 6, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)

    Clients are from Venus, Consultants from Mars: A Guide to Effective Management of Consultants

    Speaker: Michael Ellegood, P.E.

    Bio: Michael Ellegood is a practicing Civil Engineer and has managed major projects. He was Public Works Director, County Engineer and Transportation Director for Maricopa County, Arizona as well as Chief Engineer and General Manager of the Flood Control District of Maricopa County. He has been a consulting engineer and a senior manager in the Parsons Corporation, Tudor Engineering Company and T.Y. Lin International. Mike has also been active in ASPE and served as Arizona State President. Mike is a retired Army combat veteran having served in Vietnam in the late ‘60’s.

    Description: In today’s public works environment, the use of consultants to provide engineering services is endemic. In spite of the interdependency of public client and consultant, their worlds are very different; the business models are vastly different, the accounting systems are different, they are audited differently, and their legal environments are different. Even the fundamental aspects of how public agencies and consultants are motivated and how they interact with other agencies and competitors are quite different.

    This webinar will show case these differences so that client and consultant can better understand each other’s operating environment. This improved understanding will result in better communications and better mutual expectations.

    Topics to be covered include:

    • The respective business models of public client and consultant
    • The real financial world of the consultant
    • How clients perceive consultants, the hierarchy of consultants.
    • Tips on consultant selection
    • What clients expect of consultants
    • How to deal with an underperforming consultant
