Series Two, Episode One*
This opening episode of his second series of ‘in conversation’ videos features Former Chief Planner and Senior Cratus Associate Steve Quartermain CBE talking about the future of planning – the profession and, above all, the people.
In it he meets three young planners, all with long careers ahead of them but who have already amassed a treasure chest of experience and insight to share with the sector today and those aspiring to follow them into their chosen profession.
You will hear from:
- Charlotte Morphet MRTPI – Spatial Planning & Design Team Leader, St Albans City & District Council
- Robyn Skerratt MRTPI – RTPI Young Planner of the Year for 2020
- Desai Viral MRTPI – Principal Planner, Atkins
Steve asks them to talk through their career paths and achievements to date – rich and full as you will discover. Looking ahead, they reflect on how the profession must both embrace diversity in all its forms and never, ever forget the communities their work impacts.
Finally, they share their vision of planning for the future. As you will hear, if planning is their future it seems that we’re in safe hands.
