Helping construction specialists simplify their contract processes and contracts to build trust and avoid disputes

Globally construction disputes cost $billions due to contracts that you cannot read, understand or use. Do you dread your clients reading your contracts? Can you tell if a supplier's contract is a disaster waiting to happen? Do you negotiate complex contracts which then just sit on a shelf?

Speaking

Construction contracts are staggeringly complex and incredibly familiar. Sarah’s keynote ‘Never Sign on the Dotted Line‘ helps audiences focus on using contracts as invaluable tools to build trust; and ‘If Banking Can Do It Why Not Construction?’ reviews smart contracts.

Why Choose Us?

1. You will build more trust

A simple contract builds trust – it manages expectations, ensures both parties understand it and leaves no nasties hiding in the small print.

2. You will avoid more disputes

A simple contract helps avoid the avoidable. It is easy to read, quick to negotiate and anyone can check it records your agreement accurately. Its plain language gives parties confidence to raise queries and encourages parties to comply.

3. Your contracts record your agreement precisely

By accurately recording aspects such as scope, trust, aims and risks (STAR), a simple contract limits your agreement to guide the parties as to their responsibilities, without making them bet their business on a project.
