Rebecca De Cicco has always had a keen interest in digital technologies and how they can radically change the way we work and interact with one another. Having studied and worked in Australia as an Architect, the basis for her experience always involved managing and training teams to utilize this technology and interact with those ready and willing for change to enable a more efficient workflow.
Rebecca lived in the UK for almost 10 years and following a series of successful senior roles in varied architectural organizations, Rebecca managed her own consultancy, Digital Node, providing advice and insight to construction professionals all over the world on advanced digital solutions on projects as well as implementation and management processes. Her business was acquired by Aurecon early in 2021 and she now offers advice and insight to Aurecon’s key clients providing opportunities to the business to scale digital enablement advisory. Rebecca is also a strong advocate for diversity and inclusion (having been part of a future-focused industry group, BIM2050) and also teaches, mentors and trains young people regarding future processes and BIM. Her interest in training and upskilling also involved a strong social media presence for herself (@becdecicco), her prior organization (@digital_node) and finally her diversity group (@womeninBIM).
Women in BIM are also now supported by Global eTraining as a corporate sponsor, concreting the organization’s commitment to encouraging more women and those in ethnic minorities with the opportunity to enter and flourish in careers in digital in the built environment.
