‘Visual and Creative Thinking’ with graphic designer Mark Whitehouse.  In the 1980s he worked in design for some of the best known pop groups.  He then worked for Virgin becoming involved in branding and communications for some of their new business such as Virgin Cosmetics and Virgin Rail.   Communication is important in everything from job applications, to business advertising to presenting a bid for a research grant.  This will give you some ideas as to where to start.

Here’s some information from April’s speaker Alison Bristo.

Orangutans are among our closest relatives in the animal kingdom. Genetically they are about 97% identical with us. They are highly intelligent, thoughtful and humane.
Now, only to be found in Borneo and Sumatra they face extinction.

In my talk I would like to share with you:

  • My personal story of how the need to help orangutans helped to save my life and my ‘journey’ to Borneo.
  • Orangutan facts, including stories , why they are endangered and what is being done to help them.
  • My volunteer placement at the Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. Sabah, Borneo.

I will finalise my talk with what the future holds and answer questions
