2022 Winners


Awarded to Richard Meadows.

As an IET Professional Registration Advisor (PRA) Richard has been consulting and supporting several engineers at Megger Instruments at various levels of professional registration, and many have enjoyed Richard's extremely valuable and effective consultations.

Richard maintains a perfect balance between encouraging comments and assessment of real capabilities of each candidate.  His calm and honest assessment precipitates a feeling of confidence in the candidate, even though there can sometimes be serious shortcomings for the aspired level of registration.  Richard’s fantastic ability to point out positive aspects has been experienced by many.

Richard is a retired engineer and has been working as a dedicated PRA for many years, nurturing those who dare to aspire. His dedication is indeed praiseworthy, and his level of professionalism exudes confidence in all things IET.

Awarded to the Taylors University On Campus Group.

The Taylors University On Campus Group from Malaysia organised fantastic support at the beginning of 2022 to address the destruction caused by the floods in December and January. 

Being engineers they always strive hard to create solutions for existing problems facing, and faced by, their communities. In the blink of the flood scenario lots of people lost their livelihoods, some schools were damaged, and some were closed due to the post flood effects.

Being a small team they couldn’t cater much help, but did identify a kindergarten school whose facility was totally submerged in flood water and all the electrical installations malfunctioned. 

As a group of students from an electrical engineering background they were able to source and replace all the required electrical appliances for the kindergarten. This activity created a real impact among Taylorians and the Bukit Lanchong community, with the act of kindness shared by other Taylor's students’ clubs who followed their lead for other facilities.

The IET Volunteer Core Values Award for Teamwork is in recognition of their efforts to positively impact their local community in the wake of a crisis.
