IFHP Centenary Congress 2013: Simon Giles

Simon Giles, Director of Intelligent Cities Strategy at Accenture gives his view on the three main challenges facing cities before a fresh outlook on the reach of technology affecting our city lifestyles and how a focus on ‘cluster industries’ can help drive growth. How to make a city attractive is also touched upon, before a discussion of cities in the emerging market regions.


Simon Giles spoke in June 2013 at the IFHP London Centenary Congress.

He was asked:

  • How will cities encourage and generate growth in the future?
  • Of the rapidly growing cities, which will attract investment and why?
