The BESA Podcast with David Frise and Rudi Klein
Rudi Klein for many people needs no introduction, he's been involved in the construction industry for over 31 years. He's a larger-than-life figure that many of us have seen around the industry. We talked about how he got into the industry, what the difference is between 30 years ago and now. We discussed his background which many of you, I think, will find surprising and how he is often robust in his defence of the underdog.
