Election statement

To achieve the IChemE’s learned society vision, I see the overriding ingredient of success as being one where greater active engagement is at the forefront of the IChemE membership. I believe the Learned Society Committee and its initiatives can facilitate this engagement. Chemical engineering is constantly evolving as a field and we must take an open-minded and flexible approach to support and grow our special interest groups and also enhance the base value of IChemE to members, be it through news flow, webinars, face-to-face events or training material.

I believe if we develop engagement and provision of information across the membership, this will inspire others which is essential for the continued growth of the organisation and its members. I will work closely with the early careers groups in the IChemE to realise these goals in an early careers member context.
