Tips from 2019 Finalists

Gain support from your colleagues / peers; collation of ideas is key – Gareth Arnold, Aurecon

My advice for anybody thinking of entering is to just go for it. I would recommend having conversations with your peers to discuss your submission and to get as much feedback as possible. Also, don’t give up and persevere! If you are not selected as a finalist the first year you apply, seek feedback and return the following year with the lessons learnt. – Aaron Hoare, WSP

Just do it.  What you learn about yourself in the process is the most exciting part – Kathrine Jones, Wood Grieve Engineers

Be creative, look at the current trends within the industry for which to base your response off, and try to film in a room where there is minimal echo's or external noise to improve the quality of your entry. – Mitchell Peatman, University of NSW / Northrop Consulting Engineers

Really research the topic and use the opportunity to learn something new rather than treating it like a task. – Bharat Rasali, Auckland University of Technology / Construction Engineering

Just give it a go – there are no downsides to getting your ideas out there. Joining the YEN immediately puts you in a great position to network amongst your industry peers. – Tommy Sailing, Northrop

Start early and take this as an opportunity to talk to professionals in this field. – Jeff Tsang, Wood Grieve Engineers
