Business Development Manager

The Midland Region Business Development Manager is Farah Baksh, the IMechE’s primary link with industry and academia across the Region.  Farah runs workshops and seminars for prospective new members and members wishing to upgrade their membership.  A number of these workshops are arranged by the local Area Committees and will be listed in their annual programme of events.  Further details regarding the Business Development Manager can be found via the link under the Midland Region tab on the left of this page.

Getting Involved

There is a much publicised growing shortage of engineers and engineering technicians in the UK and we, the Region Committee, see as a priority the need to inspire young people with engineering, to inform them of the work undertaken by professional engineers and engineering technicians to encourage them to strongly consider engineering as a career.  To this aim we work with the Imagineering Foundation and STEMNET as well as local schools in our Areas.  We are looking to further this involvement with schools to make not only pupils but teachers and parents more aware of the roles of professional engineers and engineering technicians and engineering as a career.  If you would like to be involved in this initiative, or any other of your local Area Committee activities, then please contact us, details below, or your local Area Committee via their contact details.  Similarly, if you are interested in mentoring and sponsoring prospective new members then again please contact us.
