A member of the Nigeria Institute of Surveyors, Adedapo Fashina, has charged younger colleagues aiming to reach the pinnacle of their career to imbibe ethics of the profession.

He also advised they keep themselves abreast with new technology and knowledge.

He gave the advice at the yearly conference of Young Surveyors Network (YSN) Nigeria, Lagos branch.

Fashina, who is the Principal Partner at Arpenture Consultants Limited, in his keynote speech, listed technology and knowledge as factors that have created an enabling environment, allowing surveyors to perform their tasks efficiently and relevantly.

Speaking on the conference’s theme, ‘Shaping Tomorrow’s Surveying Community’, Fashina said: “The knowledge we have and our ethics make us the professionals that we are, while technology makes us perform our tasks.

“I emphasised technology and knowledge because I believe they are key ingredients that make our profession and our community.

“It is already an established fact that technology brings opportunities, which, in turn, comes with their challenges. I believe that the biggest challenge needs the most innovative thinking and innovative thinking needs diversity of thought. I also believe that knowledge sharing is better for our community and should be encouraged.”

On the need for young surveyors to adapt to new trends in the profession, he said: “Technological changes are happening faster than ever. With the current momentum, it is no-brainer to expect that they will continue even faster in the future.

“As a community, we need to respond to the challenges they bring for the survival of our profession. We need to, so that we can deliver confidence to our clients, the government and the public at large.”
