Speaker Richard Noble - OBE, Project Director, Bloodhound www.imeche.org/events/L6262
Location One Birdcage Walk, London
Abstract Dr Alastair Graham Bruce spent the last 12 years if his life exploring, developing and implementing ways of encouraging young people into engineering. The main platforms were fun and role models from industry.
Alistair was a founder of Imagineering as well as an active Secretary of the Foundation.

Bloodhound is an inspirational project led by inspirational Richard Noble who has combined these attributes among many others.
Against a background of today's low risk culture, Richard Noble specialises in developing high risk ventures. Obviously not all of them can be successful, but the Thrust2 programme which brought the World Land Speed Record back to Britain in 1983 and the Thrust SSC first ever supersonic land speed record programme are the best known.
Richard Noble's other projects include the ARV Super2 light aircraft, the Atlantic Sprinter Blue Riband contender, Programme Funding, an original television funding company, Farnborough Aircraft, the first distributed travel air taxi aircraft and currently the Mach 1.4 Bloodhound SSC project, the latest in the long line of Land Speed Record cars now being run through 3600UK.
