Speaker

Brandon Walker, P.Eng.

Western Canada Regional Engineer, Advanced Drainage Systems

Brandon Walker, P.Eng., has worn a lot of engineering hats: an operator for nuclear submarines, a researcher for green building design (at UBC!), a resident engineer for Metro Vancouver’s treatment plants, a water management consultant, and, most recently, a sales engineer. In each role, the practices of innovation and relationship building have been fundamental. This talk will stretch beyond the technical aspects of engineering design work, and into the so-called "soft skills" that underpin our efforts to build things better together.
