About the event

The Mechanical and Manufacturing division in association with The Institution of Mechanical Engineers Republic of Ireland branch are honoured to host IMechE President Professor Joe McGeough on his visit to Ireland to deliver his Presidential Address.

In this address, "How 'Theo' Williamson FRS changed the sound of music" Joe takes inspiration from Theo Williamson as a role model for Engineers.  He explores his life and career and describes his legacy as a shining example to all engineers, but especially young engineers, of those qualities which best capture the essence of what it is to be an engineer - creativity, problem solving and the need for perseverance.
