Book Details

Biographies are associated with celebrities and famous people. This book breaks the mold. It chronicles the life of an ordinary person who has lived an extraordinarily varied, challenging, precarious and mentally demanding life in everything from manufacturing to medicine. It involved studying and qualifying in six different professions at progressive ages of life and encompassed engineering, training, management consultancy and three complimentary therapies. Simultaneously, time was made to study and gain an MSc (management) which he was awarded in the same year as his grandson was born. The journey was not always smooth and there were a number of setbacks that were met with determination and courage. 1998 was spent in Bosnia , training physiotherapists at the Sarajevo Medical Centre. The war had ended but teaching via an interpreter was a challenge and outside land mines were a danger! Other overseas work was in Kuwait, within a team developing a “green field” training complex for Kuwait Oil. This illustrated book is of someone who trod the path and coped with changes that many people have to make. It might help readers believe in their ability to adapt and find job satisfaction regardless of life stage.
