The CIHT South West region is excited to bring you the 2021 Presentation Competition!
Being able to present effectively whilst engaging your audience and, subsequently, being able to field challenging technical questions is a key skill for those working in the transportation industry. Whether engaging stakeholders, making a case for investment, or presenting project outputs to your client group, presenting is an essential skill.
If you’re an Emerging Professional in the first ten years of your career, we’re keen to give you a platform to develop your presentation skills, and an opportunity for you to earn some kudos (and a prize!) at the same time.
We recognise that the transportation industry in the South West is expansive, covering many sectors. This offers a wealth of potential. We don’t want to constrain the discussion—this is an opportunity for you to shine, sharing your transport interests.
What we are looking for is:
A 150-word abstract outlining the content of your presentation.
A 10-minute presentation on an industry-related topic of your choice;
Your presentation will be delivered virtually via an online webinar platform. The audience will include CIHT members who register to watch, and a judging panel comprising Chris Shipway (Chair) and other members of the South West region committee. Following your presentation the judging panel will ask you questions on your presentation.
Demonstrate your talents to the South West region’s transportation community;
Develop your presentation skills and earn confidence in public-speaking;
A £250 prize for the winner; and
A feature in Transportation Professional magazine.
Great! Please submit a 150-word abstract of your presentation, via the online submission form, by Friday 23rd October 2020.
We’ll then get in touch with you, after reviewing the submissions, to confirm a date for the presentations, which will take place in February 2021. We’ll be in touch no later than 20th November 2020.
