“I’m Bruno Kinyaga from Tanzania and hold a Bachelors Degree in Customs and Tax Management. Before completing my degree I decided to join AICTL in Tanzania and encourage other young professionals to become members. I secured an internship on Port Operations at one of Taiwan’s largest container companies which is also a AICTL Corporate Member. During my internship, I helped to set up the AICTL Young Professionals Group in Tanzania.
In June 2014 I was Highly Commended as one of the International Young Achievers of the Year, receiving an Endowment Fund to conduct research into road accidents in urban areas in Dar es Salaam. In order to progress with this research I have been awarded the Henry Spurrier Award to help me continue with the second phase of disseminating my findings to the community of Tanzania, East Africa and other African Countries that are facing similar challenges. My future plans are to continue championing AICTL by increasing new members, collaborating on future projects and studying for a Master’s degree in Logistics and Transport.”
“I’m Rachel Evans, a 34 year old Transport Planning Professional working for Atkins in Birmingham. During my Environmental Science degree, I became fascinated by the role of transport planning in shaping our towns and cities. My structured Graduate Training Programme was affiliated to the AICTL so my first three years in consultancy was well supported, completing the programme in 2004 and achieving AICTL status.
Ten years further on and my career has developed in leaps and bounds including leading Atkins’ Travel Demand Management business. So that TDM is keenly represented in the AICTL’s activities here in the UK instigated me to take the role of the Chair of the Travel Demand Management Forum. Here we share knowledge and practical implementation experiences, through events, networking sessions and developing best practice across public and private sectors. The future of TDM is bright – AICTL and its approach to lifelong learning is definitely part of this picture.”
