I've finally recovered from my IET travels at the start of the month, and have a chance to tell you about them .  In five days I went from New Zealand to Tokyo to Hong Kong, and back to New Zealand again.  I almost think I spent more time travelling than I did in Tokyo or Hong Kong!  But it was great meeting some of our dedicated volunteers, and also interesting ... read more...

Well done Naomi on being such a great President and also on getting round to see so many members outside of the U.K. We will remember you and your inspirational visit to Australia with fond memories, you will always be welcome to drop in and see us whenever you are out this way. Best regards for your future from the Australian Forum and all six of the LNs down und...
Congratulations, Naomi, on a very successful year, with lots of precedents, particularly in increasing recognition and understanding of the IET and our engineers. The new campaigns to inspire and influence the next generation - such as the Horizon Bursaries in the UK - and the growth of the First Lego League are great news.

Good luck with your next role,...
I'm very proud to support 4 of these networks ;o)
This helps, but I need to see why my linkedin and twitter won't link. But it would be good, as Geoff states, for a "share on Engineering Communities" .
This is great!! I would like to point out that the IET do run code classes for girls and boys ages 7 - 17, one Saturday a month, here at our Stevenae offices. I am always looking for volunteers, so visit www.theiet.org/women to keep on top of when these classes are running or e-mail me at womensnetwork@theiet.org for more information! Thanks :)
