FIDIC YPMTP 2013
thought provoking, challenging, educative and fun
The FIDIC YPMTP is very useful and I would recommend it for all YPs in the consulting engineering industry. Amongst others, the trainees benefit from education, knowledge broadening, communication and presentation skills, networking, team spirit, improved confidence etc. It also helped to the trainees to appreciate different cultures and to interact with peers and senior colleagues.
The climax of the training for me was the future leader’s workshop where I got the opportunity to be one of the speakers to present the work of the entire group. I believe the impact the class of 2013 made at the conference would forever be in the record books of FIDIC.
The 2013 FIDIC Centenary Conference in Barcelona was thought provoking, challenging, educative and fun. It was not all about work but there were social aspects also and everything put together makes it a memorable experience for all YPs who attended the Conference.
I wish to express my sincere gratitude to the FIDIC Past Presidents Scholarship Scheme and my company Messrs Associated Consultants Limited for making it possible for me to be a part of such a wonderful experience. It has made me a more holistic professional.
To our mentor and FIDIC I would say more grease to your elbows and continue the good work in building the capacity of YPs in the industry.
