Celebrating Success: Michelle Meaclem

Michelle has had a magnitude of success in the early stages of her career, most recently being named the recipient of the U35 best presentation award at the Āpōpō conference (previously IPWEA).

Her presentation titled "What's next after COP27? How to keep 1.5 degrees alive in New Zealand's infrastructure industry through asset management" captivated the audience and earned her well-deserved recognition. You can read the full paper here

Her expertise extends globally, with Michelle also being named one of the 100 young people worldwide to participate in the COP28 UAE International Youth Climate Delegate program as well as being the co-lead for the WFEO - World Federation of Engineering Organizations young engineers working group on climate action - an incredible achievement!

At the 2023 Engineering New Zealand : : Te Ao Rangahau ENVI awards, Michelle has also been named a finalist for the 'Young Engineer of the Year' award, as she displays the qualities of a young engineer with a passion for the community who thrives from leading others and improving New Zealand's lives.

 "I have the pleasure of seeing Michelle's vision and impact in action every day. I see her commitment in and out of the workplace. Even with this insight, I am still blown away by the sheer quantum of achievements that Michelle has achieved in her relatively short career." says Technical Director of Resilience and Emergency Management Alex Cartwright.

At Tonkin + Taylor, our people are our greatest asset, so we are thrilled to see Michelle's achievements so far in her career and look forward to seeing what she has in store.
