The NEC Form of Contract is becoming increasingly popular, with many clients adopting this as their preferred form of contract. Attendees will have a clearer understanding of specific contractual clauses, and in practical terms begin to see how these should be administered for the benefit of all parties on projects.

Liverpool Best Practice Club is offering a unique opportunity to attend a DAY LONG training event with a recognised INDUSTRY EXPERT – for an AFFORDABLE price.
