Clare is Global Practice Leader for Cities with global engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald. Her role involves using systemic engineering at both building and city scale to facilitate the accommodation of more people in urban areas whilst consuming fewer resources, improving resilience and achieving enhanced quality of life. She brings a practical understanding of construction and development drivers and processes at both macro and micro level. Combining this with engagement in policy she is able to bring insight into the technical, political, financial and behavioural aspects of sustainable development. Her role is to help stakeholders understand the influences of future disrupters (such as climate change or Big Data) and then apply ingenuity, innovation and connected thinking to find integrated solutions and resilient outcomes.
