In selecting ‘Shaping Tomorrow Today’ as my Presidential theme I wanted to celebrate the contribution that each and every one of us makes on a daily basis: whether you are maintaining an existing asset, delivering a new piece of infrastructure or planning for the future, what we do makes a difference: what we do is shaping the world around us.
What an amazing day! Today was the second Young Professionals’ Network Conference – this time held in the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester.
Having heard how special last year’s inaugural event in Leeds had been I was particularly looking forward to today’s event – and I have to confess that I was totally blown away.

Today is a special day for our Chief Executive Sue Percy as she heads off to Buckingham Palace for her inauguration as a CBE.
In what is turning out to be a busy week (CIHT-wise) today saw a third visit to Britannia Walk in three days – this time for a meeting of the Board of Trustees.
Some members may not be aware that CIHT has strong linkages with the English Sub-national Transport Bodies: the STBs quarterly meetings are held at Britannia Walk.
