Since joining NCE I have worked on all sections of the magazine since starting as a junior reporter straight from industry. I'm proud to be a chartered member of the ICE but I'm a journalist now not an engineer. That said, I enjoyed my six years with Owen Williams and working on site with Balfour Beatty certainly taught me a huge amount about how the industry really works. Throughout this time I was an avid reader of NCE and I still am! As editor for the last five years I strive to help the editorial team continue to produce a high quality business magazine that meets the needs of readers every week and actually helps the whole industry move forward. Areas of Interest I tend to keep an eye on the whole industry, what's happening next, who's doing what, where the innovation is coming from and what the political drivers are. Whether the issue is rail, roads, bridges, airports, earthworks, power, education, recruitment or environment policy I'm always interested and have usually got a view. In particular it is important to me that the industry challenges itself to make its views heard by the nation's decision makers and actually commits to driving solutions rather than simply complaining. I am also passionate about ensuring that the next generation sees civil engineering as a realistic career option and as a trustee of engineering disaster relief charity RedR-IHE, I am keen to ensure that young and old engineers are able to channel their energy and expertise into life saving activities across the globe
