We are delighted that Paul Sheridan from Accenture Healthcare will join the session also. Paul is working as a specialist consultant on Accenture’s SMART Building integration.

After ten years living and working in the UK I am now back in Dublin, Ireland. I am working with the Accenture Healthcare team to integrate Smart building systems to create the world’s most advanced Smart buildings and facilities. Working at the intersection of design and delivery I represent clients to ensure the building systems when complete are as advanced as the procedures and work that will take place within them. In London I was an Associate Director at WSP. We were involved in numerous projects which reshaped the landscape and skyline of London. I led a tight knit group, working closely to deliver some of the largest and most complex buildings in the UK and the world.

Smart technology and behavioural psychology are both passions of mine. Working with clients I implement design thinking to develop user experiences and understand what a smart building means to each user. In the ever-evolving world of the built environment our relationship with buildings is changing. I am fortunate to be able to drive forward in a field that looks to create a happier, more productive space for the end user and system learning, building analytics and operational efficiency for building operators. For over 19 years I have worked within the built environment beginning as a labourer working my way to qualified electrician, engineer and now specialist consultant."
