Stephen Fry not on Twitter but will be at Ecobuild 2016

  • 16 Feb 2016

howardchapmanHoward Chapman, Buildingtalk Editor. Join me at Ecobuild 2016 where I hope to hear ex-Twitter star Stephen Fry and maybe get the chance to ask him a question in the old fashion way – face to face.


1-Fullscreen capture 15022016 081407Stephen Fry joins the Ecobuild 2016 conference line-up of industry glitterati, leaders and experts.

He won’t be turning to Twitter to air his angst or express his concerns about construction, architecture and climate change. But you can attend in person and perhaps ask him a question in the old fashion way – face to face across the conference floor.
