“I was delighted to receive the Young Professionals’ Award in 2017.
The award has raised my profile immensely in the highways and transportation sector. It has also provided an opportunity to serve as both a Member of Council and a Trustee of the Institution, working alongside senior professionals from our industry.
I would highly recommend applying for the award. If you’ve been unsuccessful with an application in previous years, then I recommend applying again (I was unsuccessful in 2016).”
