Online Lecture:  Speaker – Barrie Yates 

Thursday 25th March 2021 starting at 7.30 pm.

The meeting will be open from 7.10 pm for you to join and be ready for the start.

Our first Zoom lecture was given by Frank Smith at the end of February and was thoroughly enjoyed by the  members who joined the online Zoom meeting.  Council Member Barrie Yates has kindly agreed to give us a talk at the end of March. Here is his message…..

“My original plan was to choose my seven Victorian Engineering Heroes, but when the list got to fifteen I thought that to select just seven would be impossible. However there is a cunning plan! Tune into Zoom, and see what I have in store for you. I look forward to seeing you on Thursday 25th March at 7.30 pm.”

Kind regards,


Details of how to join the lecture are here…

For this meeting you do not need to download the Zoom software onto your device. 

The online meeting is open to all members of the Leeds Association of Engineers and their guests. The meeting will be hosted by Andrew Kibler who will email in advance all members who are registered with us. The email will contain a ‘hyperlink’, that’s the one beginning with ‘https’. Clicking this link on your devices will open your browser and take you to the Zoom page, where you wait a few moments to join the online meeting.  For those unfamiliar with Zoom here is a tip to aid your viewing:-

Once you have joined the meeting move your cursor to the top right hand corner of the window to reveal a 9 dot symbol and a drop down menu entitled ‘View’. You can then select either ‘Speaker View’ to be able to see a larger view of our guest speaker, or if you want to see more of the other members of the audience in a grid format, select ‘Gallery View’. You can also select ‘Full Screen’ and swap back and forth as you wish.

Also, for those joining the meeting on either a phone or tablet  please can you rename your window (if you know how!) with your own name, as often the device displays, for example, ‘Samsung S20’ or ‘iPad’. Clicking on the name should allow you to ‘rename’ and insert your name in the field.

Please join the meeting from around 7.10 pm onwards in order to have everyone online in good time. 

We politely request that the audience remain with their microphones muted so as not to interfere with the speaker. Thank you….

Barrie will probably be pleased to answer any questions that arise from his talk. Please raise a hand to be ‘unmuted’ to speak.

This will be our second foray into the world of online meetings and so please bear with us if there are any slight technical glitches. It’s all new to us too !

Come along and hear Barrie speak across the airwaves.  We hope you have a good evening !
