John Campbell (M), assistant project manager, Railtrack Project Delivery For the ICE to tackle its reputation as an elitist 'Ivory Tower' it must actively involve more members in the decision making process. Specifically this means getting more younger members from the regions on to council. At a sprightly 35 years, I still think of myself in the 'young' bracket!
