Jennifer, our Resilience Knowledge Co-ordinator and very first EPC student placement holder, has just won second prize in the Institute of Civil Protection and Emergency Management national student essay competition. The Bill Blake Memorial Award required candidates to submit a 3,000-word essay on “Why do lessons identified so often fail to become lessons learnt’. Jennifer answered the question using a systems approach, which we thought was sophisticated and very well written.
We expect the essay to be published in the ICPEM journal Alert quite soon. Following that, we will also publish it in the EPC Insight Programme. So please look out for both – we’ll tip you off when we have exact dates.
So well done Jennifer for a great piece of work. Also – well done ICPEM, for creating an opportunity for the resilience stars of tomorrow to shine today.
