Dr Nike Folayan MBE (PhD, CEng., FIET) and Dr Ollie Folayan CEng FIChemE have created a space aspiring professionals in this time including myself over the last few years. It has made me have more self belief in what can be achieved and continue to help others in their journey within STEM.

Speaking in discussion with young and talented engineers of the future, all who have promising careers ahead with the right opportunity, it was a crucial chance to share an insight into the industry and my role at the team.
