Barrie 1973This was the title of the 12th Annual Lecture at the International Centre for Guidance Studies at the University of Derby on December 10, 2009 and yours truly was honoured to be invited to prepare and deliver it. There were about 150 people there from all over the UK and Europe who were all professionals in the career development ‘business’. It was great for me as I was given permission to look back over my 40 years in career development. The lecture is now published and is available on their website if you would like to read it.

Thought you might be amused to see what I looked like 40 years ago! Note the ciggie and the jewelry. Would you really want to attend a lecture given by this man!
