Networking

IET Fellow events provide an excellent opportunity to network and to hear from key figures in industry.

Fellows Business Breakfasts

This year we have launched a new series of Fellows Business Breakfasts which are open to Fellows and their guests.  Featuring a short talk from a high profile speaker, each event will offer a tasty breakfast at a premium venue, with ample time to meet and talk to other delegates. The first in the series was on 9 June in London, with guest speaker Professor Phil Blythe, newly appointed as Chief Scientific Advisor to the Department for Transport. Slides from his presentation can be found below:

 


Confirmed future dates are:

  • Birmingham, 17 September 2015: Guest speaker Naomi Climer (incoming IET President) on ‘Cloud computing’. The Fellows Business Breakfast programme is available and registration is now open (you will need your IET log-in details and membership number).
  • London, 4 November 2015: Guest speaker on ‘Intelligent buildings’ at the newly re-opened Savoy Place, with a tour afterwards. Full programme and registration details coming soon.

Other dates and locations will follow in 2016. If there isn’t an upcoming event near you, a good place to engage with other Fellows in the meantime is our IET Fellowship group on LinkedIn.

Contact us on fellowsbreakfast@theiet.org if you’d like more information about these events or need to book overnight accommodation.

Fellow Networking Event

Each year the Fellowship team hosts a Fellow Networking Event for newly elected Fellows. The next Fellow Networking Event will be held on 2 December 2015 at Savoy Place, for further information contact fellowship@theiet.org.

The 2014 Fellow Networking Event took place on the 4th December attended by newly elected and existing Fellows and assorted guests. The title for the day was “Mind the Gap” discussing that the gap in attracting young people into engineering careers is wider than the gender gap. Could the reasons that deter women from considering the profession as a career be the same reasons as for the men?

Presentations from the event are listed below and can be downloaded in PDF format. AVM Sue Gray, Director of Combat Air, RAF also presented but is not included.
