Do some of these areas sound as though they might be applicable to you - great. However, if not dont worry, each situation and client has their own requirements............ so every course, talk or idea is built and developed with the specific audience/client in mind. Ian has proven on many occasions he can not only integrate and investigate associated areas of interest if required, but can communicate his findings effectively.
