Stop Press – Thursday 28 November
The evening was a great success with my son Alexander and I meeting over 120 engineering students and 180 RAeS members.
Everyone was especially pleased to met and hear Carolyn and Derwyn Jones, passengers on the QF32 flight who also addressed the audience. Their daughter Nia Jones joined them. Like me, Nia is also a great supporter of Open Disclosure. Nia tells a great story that explains how Open Disclosure prevents litigation in the medical industry.
Alexander and I thank everyone for a long but great evening.
It was a great honour for Alex and I to be shown around Trinity College the following morning by Dr Hugh Hunt. We spent an hour studying then rewinding the famous Trinity College Clock (187 years old that now maintains time to milli-second accuracy), then sat with students for breakfast under watchful eyes in the portraits of King Henry VIII and Isaac Newton.
We wish the engineering students every success with their studies.
