Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi All

I recently broadcast my first webinar on the topic of "Bottom Up Planning for Builders".

It consisted of a live demonstration of a level 4 programme for:

1. An eight story insitu structure.

2. The MEP carcassing installation

3. A 50km pipeline.

Each one in less than 15 minutes from a blank screen.

I would like to know if there is an interest for such training webinars within the PP comunity.

If so I will work to set them up.

Best regards

Mike Testro

Hi Tom

We all have a long way to go to overtake Raf Dua.

The last I heard he was past 83 and still turning it out in Oz.

I will keep you informed on the webinars.

Best regards

I have both of you beat. I turn 73 on December 7, with 52 years in industrial projects and some commercial/municipal experience. I'm still learning. I would be definitely interested in your webinars.

Hi Stephen

Thanks for your support.

I am turned 70 and two new clients called me today.

Its not work - people are daft enough to pay me for what I love doing.

My concept for the webinars is that once people have signed up anyone can suggest a topic and if I can deliver it and enough want to see it then I will deliver it - live on screen.

Best regards

Mike Testro

Hey, Mike. Given your knowledge and experience, I find it hard to imagine that any construction planners on PP would NOT want to receive such a webinar!

For myself, I'm 65 years old, haven't had a constuction client for 10 years, and am not likely to in the near future. That said, if you decide to do a future webinar on forensic techniques, count me in!

Fraternally in project management,

Steve the Bajan
