The First World War, Teaching in the world of finance, swim coaching and sailing ...

Visible to anyone in the world

My interest in learning online is spinning me around it some rather different directions: the First World War, finance for the investment industry, swim teaching and sailing instruction ... 

What has the OU prepared me for?

Researching how finance is taught takes me into my MA ODE and year at the Business School. The First World War has been a pet subject for decades now more qualified as I complete an MA in Military History. As for swimming, I swam for decade and have been teaching for nearly 15 years. I'm poolside four times a week and learn something new every time. As for sailing? I'm off across the Atlantic at the end of the year so am crewing on largish yachts, getting in some dinghy sailing and regularly taking to the water in various sizes of safety boat.
