Geoff Daly

The modern day Isambard Brunel type engineer who thinks outside the box always, nothings impossible if you can think it

biography

Old line engineer who apprenticed in the aerospace industry as a co-op diptech for 7 years in the mid 60's. Learnt the hard way and never regreted doing an apprenticeship and going to school. As a side line went sports-car racing and continued till 8 years ago. Love to try all sorts of ideas; as one of my mentors when an apprentice (Barnes Wallis 0f the bouncing bomb school) said; "if you can think about an idea of building something. You may not be able to do it today, so never give up as it will become feasible down the road" and "there is no such word as CAN'T, as it is made up of "can" do but maybe "not" now so keep on trying" that is a mantra which we should all strive for. "Continually think outside the box as nothing is impossible". When I graduated I went into Coutaulds World Engineering grp as a corporate process improvement engineer and have been in the process side of the mixing and equipment design/building industry since.
