A Part 3 student gave a meeting of RIBA regional chairs a piece of her mind when she was invited to speak by institute president Paul Hyett. The meeting, held in Birmingham, was the first of the regional summits Hyett swore to convene between each quarterly council meeting at Portland Place.

Naomi Fisher, currently working for Glenn Howells Architects, told the group of regional chairs that the education system failed to provide her or fellow students with a sufficient business background.

RIBA membership secretary Peter Trebilcock said that her remarks, and the under-representation of young people on regional councils, 'is an area we have to address'.
