Danny Forster Announced as Keynote Speaker for AVEVA World Summit 2015
Cambridge, UK – 16 June 2015: AVEVA announced today that Danny Forster will be its keynote speaker at the AVEVA World Summit 2015. As the host of the award winning Discovery Channel show “Build it Bigger”, Danny will share his unique insight into ambitious and pioneering construction projects around the world. His subject matter and engaging style will be an ideal match for the challenges faced by the executives and senior managers that attend the Summit from across the process plant, power, marine and construction industries.
Danny’s passion and skill for architecture and engineering has been portrayed through many different fields of work including his Emmy award for producing “Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero” along with Steven Spielberg, his co-executive producer. The series chronicled the vast effort it took to rebuild lower Manhattan after the tragedy of 9/11 and the personal stories behind that effort. Along with his academic work as a professor and lecturer at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and Syracuse University School of Architecture, he also operates his own architectural design studio.
