The Bill Munn Knowledge Series relaunches in Worcester
Last week Speller Metcalfe was delighted to announce the successful relaunch of The Bill Munn Knowledge Series, after a two year covid break.
Taking place for the first time in Worcester, the event brought together construction industry professionals to share knowledge and best practice.
Endorsed by the The CPD Certification Service (CPD standing for Continued Professional Development), the event enables attendees to gain CPD points as part of their commitment to professional development, by enhancing personal and professional skills and keeping up-to-date with the latest industry developments.
For Speller Metcalfe, the event is particularly poignant as it was created by the late Bill Munn, who believed in sharing knowledge for the greater good – something which still resonates strongly with the company:
“Bill was an advocate for change, development and improving and upskilling those around him,” says James Speller, managing director at Speller Metcalfe.
“He very sadly passed away in 2017, but we were delighted to be able to uphold some of his legacy by rebranding to The Bill Munn Knowledge Series in respect and acknowledgement of his industry contributions and creation of The Knowledge Series. He was a much-loved member of staff, and well respected by peers and partners throughout the West Midlands.”

Held at The Guildhall in Worcester, the event brough together clients, consultants and wider professionals from across the Three Counties in recognition of the comprehensive investment plans happening across the region, with the following speakers and topics:
- “Making a difference with public sector finance – winning friends and influencing people”
David Blake, Managing Director of Worcester City Council
- “Developing Herefordshire’s big economic plan and major projects”
Roger Allenby, Service Director for Economy at Herefordshire Council
- “Severn Campus: A new health and wellbeing campus for Worcester”

All four speakers provided insightful presentations, with comments from attendees such as ‘thought-provoking’, ‘very useful for identifying upcoming opportunities’ and ‘a useful overview from some of the counties key decision-makers’.
Speller Metcalfe will be looking to continue with our free CPD events next Spring in Birmingham and Bristol, with opportunities for sponsors to take part in the event.
