Every time you go to a concert, a show, or even switch a switch in your home, you expect the electricity to flow. But have you ever stopped to think about what happens behind the scenes to make sure that happens?

In the first part of my presentation, I will detail how our Merseyside depot prepared for Eurovision: the biggest song concert in the world. After all, the world was watching! Could you imagine total darkness as Graham Norton walked on the stage?!

Then, I will detail the path I took through high school, A-Levels and university: what subjects I took, what hobbies I enjoy, and how I made it to Senior Engineer at just 27.
