Young Person of the Year 2009 Award

9th December 2009

It was a great pleasure to present this year's Young Person of the Year 2009 award to Mr. Hisham A. Fyyaz during yesterday's DieselMax lecture. This award was presented to him for his outstanding contributions to raising the profile of the profession.

After leaving the University of Liverpool in October 2008, Hisham began volunteering in the institution's activities and joined the Greater Manchester Young Member Panel (GMYMP) and helped promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Within GMYMP, he primarily helped in Event Organisations, amongst others engaging 12 to 13 years olds in inner city schools to discuss the future of the planet and possibility to improve the world through engineering.
Currently, he is supporting the GMYMP publicity team to explore new ideas for publicising events, involving the local press, further education colleges, and local businesses. Hisham contributed case studies to the Engerneration websites, specifically focussing on equipment design and manufacturing. He has now recently been elected Chairman of the GMYMP.

As a Gold Ambassador, he actively improved his skills in further development activities. he was organising events to promote Engineering as a Career Choice for school children, presenting engineering innovations and interactive activities. Hisham is online mentor for school children through the STEM network for Year 12 pupils.

Currently he is working towards achieving CEng status whilst preparing a work portfolio to meet eligibility criteria for MBA programmes.

All his progress and achievements are followed closely by his Hisham's mentor Ivor Collins, who is proving direction on both, personal and career levels: "[Ivor] has been an inspiration and I look forward to his continuing support on achieving my goals"

This Young Person of the Year 2009 is well deserved and we are looking forward to his next achievements. We wish him all the best in his future personal and professional development.
