Communications Competition has been hosted in the UK as one of the signature events for young ICE members for years. It aims at nurturing the young members by developing their skills and techniques for public consultation and preparing them to excel in this increasingly demanding society. Following last year's success on our Communications Competition in Hong Kong, this year we came back with even more challenging scenario.
Six teams are selected to the final of the competition for an interactive mock public consultation meeting. Each team will be given 30 minutes to present their development plan to the general public and stakeholders. The main aim is to engage the public to seek their support towards the development while facilitating the project implementation.
The quality of dialogue with judges and audience will be evaluated. The judging panel, with professionals from various disciplines, will play roles as different stakeholders. Audience will be able to appreciate the challenges faced by engineers when undertaking projects. Moreover, audience can participate in the competition as general public to raise questions to the teams and take this opportunity to engage in a mock public consultation meeting.
