Engineers in Business
One of the prizes I was most surprised to win at Ingenuity Impact 2021 was the Engineers prize. To be honest I didn’t even think I was in the running as I hadn’t through of myself as an engineer.
When I looked at the criteria I DO count because I am a computer science student registered with BCS and designing and creating a product - therefore an engineer. I suppose I am trying to engineer a solution to menopause problems!
As a regional winner of the Engineers award I had the opportunity to apply for a place in the ENGINEERS IN BUSINESS FELLOWSHIP final. I found out last week I made the final – top 10 students engineers in the country in the Champion of Champions final. (The shock and pride continues!).
I was invited to a day in London at the Royal Academy of Engineers a week ago for press, photos, interviews and mentoring. It was an amazing day out and landed on the last sunny day of the year. The RAE is a gorgeous building in a lovely area of London, blowing distance to Buckingham Palace. The afternoon was great. I love talking about ChangeXtra and hearing what others think about the business.
The grand final will be held on 22nd October. You can see the pitch that got me here by following this link (and you can also vote and the one with the most votes wins a cash prize!)
Thanks to ENGINEERS IN BUSINESS FELLOWSHIP for this amazing opportunity and for recognising the potential of ChangeXtra.
Let’s engineer a solution to feeling fed up and fobbed off about the menopause!
