The day had finally arrived, my Presidential Inauguration! Following the Council and AGM I was delighted to receive my presidential chain. Following Steve Rowsell’s amazing presidential year, I am proud of the opportunity to help lead the Institution at such an exciting time. I gave a brief presentation on my childhood and education, career to date and I introduced my presidential theme for the year, which is Creating Better Places.
I believe that transport planning and highway engineering are extremely important professions as they can actually shape the world we live in. Therefore my presidential theme choice is, on the one hand a celebration of what we do and on the other hand a reminder that we must strive as an Institution and as professionals to Create Better Places.
