Grand finale


My congratulations go to all those who participated in the national final of the graduates and students papers competition on the evening of 4 October. Reaching the final is a major achievement in itself, but the ability shown by candidates in presenting technical information to an audience with different levels of experience demonstrates possession of a very special talent.

This ability is a vital tenet of success for the graduate members who will soon be sitting their graduate reviews. I am therefore pleased that all of those preparing for their reviews are so confident of success that they felt no need to attend the final to see how it is done.

Presentation is the first part of the Chartered Professional Review (CPR) day, and a good performance not only boosts a candidate's own confidence, but also creates a favourable impression with the reviewers.

Niall O'Hea, professional development manager, Institution of Civil Engineers
