Roughan & O’Donovan (ROD) was delighted to sponsor the Chartered Institution of Highways and Transportation Yorkshire and the Humber (CIHT Y&H) summer barbecue, which took place on 20th July 2023 in the Parkside Tavern, Leeds.
With more than 30 people in attendance, the event provided an ideal opportunity for our young engineers to network with fellow transportation professionals from across the region. For some of the attendees the highlight was the sumptuous array of meats prepared by the grill masters, while for others it was the chance to showcase their skills in playing pool, darts and shuffleboard.
For ROD’s Michael Chung, Chair of CIHT Y&H, the primary goal of the event was to promote the professional development and growth of younger engineers. He said: “Coming to events such as this, it is good to remember that not every competitor is competitive. Some might want to work collaboratively with you or might become good allies for future projects. Some might even know that person you need to get in touch with and offer an introduction. It is good to be able to help each other out.”
