Rebecca De Cicco has always had a keen interest in digital technologies and how they can radically change the way we work and interact in the Built Environment. Having studied and been employed in Australia as an Architect the basis for her experience involved managing and training teams to utilise 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 globally on advanced digital solutions on projects as well as BIM 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 not for profit groups.
Rebecca supports Building Smart globally, sits on the Autodesk Developer Network and Expert Elite groups and works with the UK BIM Alliance and BIM Regions to help industry upskill. She is a strong advocate for diversity (Chair of @WomeninBIM) and works with higher education by tutoring and lecturing both undergraduate and postgraduate students in BIM and Construction Management. Rebecca is also a fellow of the CIOB and offers support and training to the likes of BSI, CIOB, RICS and other institutions in the BIM space. Her interest in training and upskilling also involves a strong social media presence for herself (@becdecicco), her organization (@digital_node) and finally her diversity group (@WomeninBIM).
