Fred talks with Ms Novak about her career in the Construction industry. The daughter of a construction industry executive, she traveled extensively, visiting her father’s job sites and decided that was her career ‘calling’. She worked her way up to very senior roles, responsible for billions of dollars in government and commercial projects with several large construction firms. They talk about her fundamental values, approach to managing large complex projects and diverse clients/constituents and what it was like being one of the first women, especially at an executive level, in the Construction industry. Finally, Nancy is much sought after as a lecturer as she shares her insights on management and women’s issues; especially in industries where they have yet to establish an equal presence.
