Delighted to have attended @TheIET @IETawards #IETAchieve ceremony on Wednesday 15th Novemeber 2017. Well organised with a good turnout at the impressive @theBreweryVenue, it was a chance to network with a very diverse, international mix of engineering professionals, academics, students, armed forces representatives and volunteers.
This year’s event was hosted by the very capable @AngelaLamont (best known for the #BBC1 It’ll Never Work? programme) who ensured the smooth running of the event whilst always keeping the tone enjoyable and interesting.
Naturally there were many awards. Key highlights included the Faraday Medal presented to Dr Bjarne Stroustrup for his revolutionary and now far-reaching work on the creation of the C++ programming language, and an Honorary Fellowship awarded to @iamwill for his contribution to the engineering profession – helping to raise the industry profile even further!
The ceremony was interspersed with impressive and thought-provoking presentations by the Present Around The world (#PATW) global finalists, the audience being able to vote on presentation skills and technical content of the speakers, and so special mention goes to Shubham Saraff of the South Asia Region who emerged the winner with his presentation on “Neurons that Shaped Us”.
Next years’ @IETawards Ceremony, celebrating and networking as the winners of the #IETAchieve prestigious Achievements Awards and Scholarships are announced, will be held on 14th November 2018 in London.
Keen to hear more from others who attended this year’s event, or anyone interested in attending next year, feel free to get in touch!
