Esme Fowler, last year’s winner said: “I think for any young professional, speaking in a Webinar can seem daunting but the SaRS Committee did a great job at making me feel at ease and ensuring the event ran smoothly. Overall, I really enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend that other Safety and Reliability Engineers consider taking part. It’s a great way to support and learn from other Engineers across the discipline.”
