It’s a great honour to be selected as a President’s Future Leader. I’m excited to be able to work alongside senior colleagues to drive our industry forward for the better. I’ve wanted to be a civil engineer for 14 years and so having the opportunity to be part of projects at the highest level of the Institution and visit regional branches of the Institution is an amazing opportunity to learn more about areas of Civil Engineer which I don’t work in day to day.

Civil engineering is so important to society and has shaped the world as we know it today. The ICE’s role leading the industry is as important now as it ever has been, given today's global challenges and opportunities such as demographics shifts, climate and the digital revolution. As a Future Leader, I’m looking forward to seeing the industry from a new perspective and being involved in a way that’s different to what I have been doing in my career so far. I'm excited to work with the ICE on a project that may shape the industry for decades to come.

Civil Engineer, Skanska UK

Civil engineers tackle major challenges that transform the world around us. Our work is prevalent and tangible; it directly impacts everybody’s lives, every day. Yet, in general, our profession is still vastly misunderstood.

I am greatly excited to work with Paul Sheffield as one of his Future Leaders this year. I share in his vision and passion of building on the bicentenary themes of engaging the public and changing perceptions. Having the opportunity to inspire others and influence how the ICE promotes our industry is a fantastic opportunity for me to embrace as a Future Leader.
