Manchester Smart Motorways


Manchester Smart Motorway is a multi-million pound highways project being delivered on behalf of Highways England. It is being constructed by 5 different contracting organisations, 2 different design consultants and dozens of suppliers. Developing a high performing team, from a standing start, is always a challenge for any infrastructure project, but our scheme has the added dynamic of staff working for multiple organisations.

We have undertaken a number of team building events on the project and decided to use Damian Hughes as an alternative to more conventional facilitators. Initially we were unsure whether Damian’s Sports Psychology background could be transferred into techniques that would benefit our business needs. I would have to say, the subject areas that Damian covered were first class. Not only were they totally relevant to the challenges that we face on a major construction project, but they can be transferred into everyday life. His style of delivery was excellent and very down to earth. I would recommend any organisation using him. He will certainly add value.
