Hello, my name is Kelvin. The picture tells you all you need to know about my life stage. And it’s five years old now so imagine the current decayed look… a face only a mother could love.
At ARU I am a member of the small but perfectly formed postgraduate marketing group in Cambridge. Most of my career was spent in regional ad agencies before I got too old, too expensive and too opinionated… to all intents and purposes I became unemployable.
Before I started at ARU I was lecturing on a contract basis in a couple of further education colleges. That’s why I speak up in lectures now, not because I know anything but because I understand what it’s like to stand at the front and ask a question and get nothing but silence and bemused looks in return. It is no fun.
So why blog when I have enough on my plate with the course? Hopefully, in this small way, to encourage people of a certain age to come back into education. Simple as that.
Oh, what do I get up to when I am not studying? The usual old man stuff; I love a craft beer or two, watching the genius that is Jon Stewart on the Daily Show, keeping my own blog up to date, enjoying classic rock and Americana music and despairing about the Super Hoops every Saturday afternoon (you’ll notice the absence of gardening, pipe smoking, collecting of any description and line dancing).
