Engineering our Status

Some months ago I gave a talk in which I concluded that very few can name a famous accountant but many people can name a famous engineer or two. Afterwards, a chartered accountant in the audience said he sympathised with most of my talk - however, you engineers have only yourselves to blame! I concluded that he meant we do not project ourselves or our profession highly or often enough, or that we are divisive. C.P. Pountney
