“It is a very special honour to be invited to be our Institution’s 102nd President. From my non-conventional start, not knowing which career direction to take in the early years. I am deeply humbled and a living testament that with hard work anything is possible.”
“Our profession is going through a period of rapid and fundamental change. The climate emergency, legislation and rising costs means that every structural engineer needs to re-evaluate their approach…regardless of experience or background. The Institution needs to support the profession as it responds to these challenges.”
