5 August 2016 – South West Summer Social – Bristol
A big thank you to Jeff and Alistair from Victaulic, for sponsoring this year’s event (and providing the winning prizes)! We all had a fantastic time at the Pub Treasure Hunt carrying our tasks and challenges around the pubs of Bristol.
Hope to see you all joining us again at the Christmas Social in December, for some very festive fun and activities!

17 -22 November 2015 – YEN Global Conference – Hong Kong

Carla Bartholomew and Sophia Wing represented the South West on the first YEN Conference held on a global scale, situated in Hong Kong.
The trip was intended to take the YEN Conference outside the UK (where is it typically held), as the next stage in the development of YEN, to develop as a truly international network of young engineers, and was attended by YEN members from Australia, New Zealand, Dubai and Republic of Ireland too. To recognise the international character of CIBSE and YEN, CIBSE Hong Kong Branch invited us to their November 2015 Technical Symposium in Hong Kong. Supported by senior CIBSE officers and staff, we also attended series of professional development, industry expert presentations and technical site visits. This enabled us to receive first hand insight into the challenges of Building Services Engineering in another culture, climate zone and region.
Following the trip, Carla and Sophia presented to the South West members, on the challenges and experiences they faced, and how it developed them personally and professionally.
