Welcome to the South Essex Area

Summer 2016

According to the Smith Institute ‘Who Governs Britain Report’, our politicians come from business, finance, law or media backgrounds. Manufacturing, technical or science don’t even make their list of occupational backgrounds. Television documentaries are largely focused on the ‘human story’ whilst newspapers are looking for sensational headlines, so how can voters be expected to have a balanced view on issues of the day such as fracking or power generation?

The South Essex Area Programme aims to bring nationally acknowledged specialists to your town where you can gain factual information about a variety of Engineering related subjects including energy, transport and sports science. Attendees will have the opportunity to question those specialists directly. South Essex Area provides these talks, generally, for no entry fee and, in addition to our members, we encourage interested citizens to attend.

The new programme of lectures for 2016/2017 is focused on the theme of ‘Transport of the Future’ and in conjunction with PROCAT (Prospects College of Advanced Technology) we are aiming to attract future engineers to attend our meetings. Lastly I would like to make a special thanks to Jonathan Lee Recruitment for their sponsorship over many years.

I look forward to meeting you to at our next event.
