About this event

Andrew Wolstenholme, CEO of Crossrail will be the third speaker*of the 2018 Inspiring Engineers programme.

The talk will take place in the Crossrail office in Canary Wharf. Due to security requirements, we will supply delegates' names in advance, and building security on the ground floor will need to see a staff pass or bank card showing your name. The talk will start promptly at 8.30am. Please allow plenty of time for the security check and for us to escort you up to the 28th Floor.

The series showcases the different career paths within civil engineering and aims to inspire a new generation of civil engineers to follow in their footsteps.

Given in an informal setting, the events will encourage attendees to ask the questions they have always wanted to ask and share their own experiences of the industry.

Come along, network and be inspired by other civil engineers from across the industry.

A light breakfast will be available.

*Please note this will replace the April talk. The next talk in the series will take place on Friday 11 May, 2018.
