Why write a blog? Why now?
It’s been an interesting and stimulating life, and it still is: from working class home to world class universities, and onward to Africa, the Gulf, senior executive positions in global industries and more, operating in so many sectors – charities, oil & gas, foreign armed services, defence, security, civil engineering, career support, law, voluntary organisations and others.
