Lord Browne, author of the book, Make, Think, Imagine, joined us at our Tempest facility to discuss the inspiration behind his work, his long and prestigious engineering career and to make a compelling argument about the power of technological progress and its ability to bring prosperity to the global community. 
 
In his book, Lord Browne provides an impassioned defence of progress and innovation and an argument for social responsibility using his career from engineer to businessman and former CEO of BP as an example. 
 
Referencing our important advancements in the work of 3D printing, automation and military advantage, Lord Browne quotes several of our senior engineering experts on the major advances we are making to the engineering profession and adding that engineering as part of the defence industry, will continue to 'steer the course of innovation.'
