Speaker Bio
Biography - Born in the UK, Sue also holds Belgian citizenship and has lived in Belgium for 18 years. A native English speaker, she is also fluent in French and can speak German. She has worked in EU affairs for 27 years, more than 16 of these being for international
member organisations. Her interest in improving services to members inspired her to undertake a Master’s Degree in Leading Innovation and Change, for which her thesis was about adding value in member organisations. She also has a Postgraduate Certificate in
EU Law. From 2013-2021, Sue worked in the field of construction as a lobbyist, representing contractors. As Director of Technical and Environmental Affairs at the European Construction Industry Federation (FIEC) and President of the European Council for Construction
Research, Development and Innovation (ECCREDI), she worked with both the European Commission and the European Parliament on relevant policy developments affecting the industry. She is passionate about construction and, whilst at FIEC, worked to promote new
technologies, digitalisation and innovation. A collaborator and networker, she has always enjoyed working with other relevant stakeholders and joined EFCA on 1 July 2022. She believes that engineers are critical to the delivery of the current wave of policy
developments, aimed at achieving a sustainable, climate-proof built environment, that meets the needs of all citizens; delivered by a resilient, green and digital construction ecosystem, in which consulting engineers will lead with innovative solutions.
