I set up a second meeting with the ICE Regional Support Team (RST) to talk about promoting the role of engineers in society today. At the first, there was a lot of discussion about how we could promote the events we have. It occurred that the way forward might be public events designed to showcase what we do – and for the first time I mentioned the idea of newspaper structures  to another person. The response was gratifyingly enthusiastic – it certainly intrigued the people I was speaking to –and though intriguing engineers is the starting point, I’m beginning to hope that it might capture the public imagination too.
