About this event

The eighth talk of the Inspiring Engineers programme will see Matt Kuhn, Programme Director TEAM2100, CH2M & Vice Chair, ICE London speak on 'Diverse teams make the best teams'.

Inspiring Engineers is a new programme of events organised by the ICE London and South East England Diversity Taskforce. The programme invites industry leaders to speak on how they have achieved success in their fields, with the aim of inspiring a new generation of diverse civil engineers to follow in their footsteps.

Each month, a speaker will give an informal topic on how they made it in their career. 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.
