CIHT Young Professionals Conference 2019
This year, the Chartered Institute of Highways and Transport’s Young Professionals Conference is focusing on the future of transport: sustainability and innovation. The event is a fantastic opportunity for fledgling members of the industry to network with both their peers and senior experts. The insights provided can act as life lessons by experienced members of the community and act as core elements of a young professional’s development. The conference is invaluable to those finding their feet in the first few years of their career.
Because of this, a few of our own young professionals are attending to help fast track their knowledge base, gain insights and best practice and enhance their existing skills. They will be attending several talks that focus on a comprehensive set of topics. ‘Think People’ centres on the specialists who deliver strategies that actively contribute to a better future. ‘Think Sustainability’ talks about how the industry is responding to modern challenges with renewable practices. ‘Think Technology’ focuses on the strides that are being made with the latest innovations and how the industry will evolve to meet these standards. Lastly, we have the showcase sessions which feature international speakers such as representatives from Smart Cities, Environment Group at Highways England and a professor from the Institute for Transport Studies at the University of Leeds.
We hope that our own attendees have a great time at this fantastic event, and that they bring back many new ideas about the industry and their own plans for their future development.
