Following the introductions we got to hear where President Laurie Leshin of WPI presented "Inspiring Future Innovations", telling us her story and about really cool space exploration projects - a very exciting area for mankind and our (and possibly others) existence. There's always need for innovation in any business, not least in fire safety. Listening to leaders in other industries is very refreshing and a good (and new I believe) addition to the North America Conference.

delivering a highly relevant speech to SFPE.
I do believe that EWB is a natural partner for SFPE. Most fire casualties are in the developing world and as a global engineering society I think SFPE has a unique opportunity to make a difference. What could SFPE and its members do for developing countries? Let me know what you think!
