About the Author
Rebecca 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 now manages 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. It is with this knowledge that she can communicate, train and manage teams in a BIM environment as well as ensure her knowledge is spread throughout the industry within education and focused groups.
Rebecca works with Building Smart UK, sits on the Autodesk Developer Network and feedback community and supports the London BIM initiative within the BIM Regions that help support and grow an industry. She is also a strong advocate for diversity and young people (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 organization (@digital_node) and finally her diversity group (@womeninBIM).
