I am in the process of setting up my own website/blog (currently redirected to

Some of my post LTS portfolio is already in place and it looks like a good mix already with more variety to follow (I hope).

Planning to blog about my reading and my future plans over the summer. Have a great summer (or winter if you are in Oz or NZ).

  2. I’m sure with your skills and winning smile your new venture will do well. Pleased to hear that you are going to be doing some teaching at Abertay as a visiting Professor of Learning Inoovation (should that not be Innovation) and Teaching as you are a natural at teaching.

    Enjoy July and good luck.

    Enjoy your well deserved time out / off Laurie.
    Looking forward to hearing about your new roles, especially re Univ of Abertay and “inoovation”!
