  • About LizaBrooks:

    Well I'm 25 years old, in 2006 i graduated from RMCS cranfield university getting a 2.1 HONS in Mechanical Engineering and management.

    I then went on to start my Doctorate in advanced Snowboard design in conjunction with the company i jointly formed True Snowboards. It an Engineering doctorate so i had to do an MBA at the same time which i have now finished and have a lot more time on my hands for travelling :D

    I love my job its the most amazing job in the world, I get to work with amazing people everyday and experiance new things all the time. The people I meet in my job are so inspiring either both academically, my peers at university, and for their sporting abilities, the riders on the Junior team we sponsor are prime examples. I am so proud of them and the way the represent me and my company is a honour and they are the most rewarding part of my job.

    I also work as a motivational lecturer for the Engineering Technology Board and STEM. I love inspiring the next generation of young scientists and engineers :-p
