What have I done all my life…
This is it in a nutshell. The detail is too long-winded but contact me if you really want to know.
1960s – trained and worked as a radiographer in Melbourne’s public hospitals in the days of no seat belts and no drink-driving laws. Absolutely horrendous accidents on Friday and Saturday nights…
1970s – got bored with the predictable routine of radiography so I trained as a computer programmer. This was in the days of sex discrimination, so it took me over two years to land a job. Eventually, CSIRO rescued me and with eternal gratitude, I learnt heaps.
Mid-1970s – moved to England. Worked in the back-end analysis of market research surveys in the much-maligned Milton Keynes. Became the figurehead for a national television advertising survey.
1980s – worked for Barclaycard, Barclays Bank credit card company and the sole Visa card issuer in the UK, installing their first credit-scoring system.
Late-1980s – moved to Scorelink, a credit-scoring provider just near Windsor Castle, becoming CEO.
1990 – collapsed under the corporate strain succumbing to chronic fatigue, a five-year sentence.
Mid-1990s – self-employed marketing communications. Co-authored my credit-scoring textbook which is still in use today.
Mid-2000s – returned to Australia and started writing seriously. Spent eight years ghostwriting. Discovered past-life regression which morphed into trance tchannelling and together with writing and editing, this has become my late-life new career.
