A brief history of the lecture
Originally The Young Professionals’ Lecture was the ‘IEE Silvanus P. Thompson Lecture’ - two lectures that ran concurrently and following a re-brand in 2005, the Young Professionals' Event changed format to a single annual event.
The change of name reflects the intended target audience of both engineers and technologists, and implies an informal networking opportunity for those who attend.
In 2008 it became part of the IET’s long running annual Prestige Lecture Series which includes the Kelvin Lecture, the first of which was given by Silvanus P. Thompson.
