I am a life fellow of the RSA and have attended many lectures on education, management and the future. I ma not interested in the arts.
I have had a wide range of roles, but am reducing these as I get older (I am 83). I got a first in chemistry at Magdalen College, Oxford, joined ICI as a research chemist in 1951 and finished up as the Company Education and Training Manager, retiring early in 1982. I co-authored a best seller, Effective School Mannagement, and have trained about 1000 head teachers in management. I chaired a consortium of development training employers from 1982 till 2005, was a trustee of my local YMCA from 1967 till 2009 and of Brathay Hall from 1991 till 2010. Currently I chair the Board of Lambourne End Outdoor Centre in Essex. I am very interested in young people development.
