It is a great pleasure and honour for me to deliver the 62nd Snape Memorial Lecture. This will be a Snape Lecture with a difference, though, as I'm going to take a more personal and reflective line, sketching some of my own road as a civil engineer over the last four and a half decades, and drawing some lessons from that for the profession and the industry going forward. I am doing this, firstly, because I am close to retirement and have a lot to share, and secondly, because personal reflections are often very useful lenses in which to see reality and convey it to others. I hope you will not find the personal focus self-laudatory - there is absolutely no intention of that.
