Podcast 12 - Innovative cities - Prof Tim Broyd

Prof Tim Broyd is immediate Past President of the Institute of Civil Engineers (ICE) and Professor of Built Environment Foresight as well as Honorary Professor of Civil Engineering at University College London. Prof Tim reflects on the past 200 years of the civil engineering institute. It was started in a coffee shop with young engineers looking for a mentor. Prof Tim describes civil engineers as invisible superheroes who helped remove terrible diseases and benefited society in many ways, such as installing safe drinking water to cities. Prof Tim also highlights how engineers have to reinvent themselves for the next 200 years, to solve the unintended consequences of development – such as climate change, biodiversity collapse and massive mental illness in our cities. He has great advice for mentors to encourage young engineers to find their own voice. Enjoy the conversation.

Podcast 10 - Regenerative City Strategies - Helen Beaumont

Helen has a passion for strategies that create regenerative cities. She heads the Strategy and Policy team for Christchurch City in New Zealand. You will hear through her conversation her love for leading and working in teams that create people centred cities. Her mentors encouraged her to grow and expand her wisdom beyond what she had formally studied. This led her on a journey through analytical science, research, working as a commissioner, learning mediation skills and strategic formulation. Helen has a good way with crafting words and making complex subjects understandable. I love her phrase “Good strategy and policy in a city is like plumbing and electrical wires in a house. You don’t know they are there until they go wrong.” So true. Christchurch found that out the hard way. The earthquakes of 2011 and 2012 brought poor strategy and policy to the surface (as well as society’s love for driving down minimum standards until things collapse or break). This left the city broken...
