“Put simply, our contracts go better when Jon Broome helps set them up by running a start-up workshop, as the two or more organisations start working as ‘one project team’ much faster”

Dave Thomas
Business Development Manager, Western Region, BAM Nuttall Ltd

Dr Jon Broome provides practical advice, training and workshops to help organisations deliver their projects more successfully. As well as being a recognised expert practitioner on NEC contracts and contracts & procurement for projects & programmes, he is also an accomplished facilitator with many of his larger assignments combining all three skills.  

A trained civil engineer, Jon additionally holds a PhD in the applied use of NEC. Working for construction and heavy engineering clients and contractors throughout the world,  he often works with senior management to develop 'fit for purpose' commercial and contractual arrangements to deliver projects successfully. Often, but not always, this leads into using the NEC family of contracts where he writes, reviews and improves the contract documentation.  

However, developing contracts is only part of the success story :

  • training the delivery team on what the contract says and in particular how to implement it successfuly is a skill where Jon has developed a reputation as a knowlegeable, pragmatic and engaging trainer.
  • in many projects, the team comes from numerous organisations with different aims, cultures and systems. As a facilitator, Jon combines 'hard' project management processes with applied psychology to rapidly build high performing project teams.

 Jon works with both the public and private sectors, including well-known national contractors alongside smaller regional contractors. He has delivered innovative ground breaking commercial solutions to the defence, aerospace, ship building and coal-mining sectors.

Contracts & Procurement

Successful projects are almost always delivered collaboratively, so it makes sense that the commercial framework which underpins the selection process & contracts aligns  participants towards the same goals. Participants can then focus on working together vs fighting their own contractual corner. Jon helps develops such commercial frameworks.

Project Team Facilitation

Through lively and engaging workshops, typically run in early on in the project life cycle, Jon helps people from disparate organisations rapidly form a high-performing team for the good of the project. His unique forthright style  blends 'hard' project management processes with 'soft' applied psychology techniques. At the same time, tangible benefits, such as a cost and time savings are often identified and actioned.
