Join the ICE East Midlands Graduates and Students Committee for the webinar with Michael Fisher on leadership for civil engineers.

Being a ‘leader’ is not a role or position in an organisation. This online webinar will provide the foundations for becoming an effective leader.

‘Leadership and management’ is a key attribute of being a civil engineer. Throughout their careers, civil engineers face challenges - technical, environmental, and economic - and they need to be equipped with effective leadership skills to lead others and projects through them.

This webinar will answer the following questions:

  • Why is leadership important?
  • What is the difference between management and leadership?
  • Who can be a leader?
  • How do we become effective leaders?


Michael Fisher

Passionate about leadership, Michael Fisher is a professionally qualified civil engineer who wants to help others to become better leaders. As a host of the podcast ‘Leadership in construction’ Michael interviews leadership professionals from across the globe, From Australia, to South Africa, to Nigeria, to America, and the UK seeking out what it means to be a leader and what it takes to be an effective leader.

Michael leads teams of design engineers and technicians in the design and construction of airport infrastructure such as runway resurfacings, taxiway rehabilitations, and new Apron constructions.

In his career that spans 14 years, Michael has witnessed both good and poor leadership and the effects that each has on other people and on the projects. Michael believes people should work on projects, feeling inspired, motivated, valued, and safe.

His podcast ‘Leadership in construction’ is available on YouTube, Spotify, Anchor FM, and Google Podcasts.
