I'm MD of Radman Associates.
Managing a team of highly competent RPAs and technical support staff, and making RPA visits to industrial, research and university clients throughout the UK.
Meeting such a diverse range of people in RP, from academia to corporate to blue-collar.
(Well the Radman Guide is a must as it’s such an easy reference tool for the IRR!) Seriously though, the Rad Data Handbook by Delacroix is always to hand.
Vibrant, varied, valuable.
I've attended many over 35 years, but I well remember one at Holland Park, London to introduce the system of RP under ICRP60.
My wife Catherine and son Alex. His brother Harry is studying law at Warwick.
Birdwatching and angling.
Life of Pi by Yann Martel.
A birding tour of South America would be superb.
The Waterboys – Fisherman’s Blues.
Yes, two kunekune pigs who are very friendly and love to scrump under the apple trees.
A wildlife film maker.
Sir David Attenborough, as I’m passionate about nature conservation and looking forward to getting involved when I retire.
Moroccan lamb tagine (...and fission chips of course!).
Salmon fishing in Patagonia with my brother Rick, who lives in Chile.
World population doubles every 40 years.
I'll never forget one of the first RPS course lectures I gave many years ago, on Ionising Radiations. At the end, a delegate approached me to say that they’d been using their nucleonic gauge a great deal lately with the shutter open, so would the source be soon ‘running out of gamma rays’? Hopefully my teaching skills have improved some over the years!
Pale Rider and all the Clint westerns.
"If you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail!"
Who do you owe a great deal for assisting you in your career?
My father, now elderly and infirm, who founded Radman Associates in 1984 and recruited me following my health physics training in the MoD. He is a founder member of the Society.
