Notice of Meeting
December 8th is also our renowned Annual Xmas Soirée!
Date: Thursday, December 8th, 2016
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: The Diamond Lounge at SFU Downtown
Speaker: Hugh Lindsay
Topic: You’re not getting older; you’re getting better
At the age of 51, Hugh Lindsay made a career move that profoundly changed his life and how he looked at it. When he turned 70, he took a course in the Adults 55+ program at SFU that helped him understand what was happening to him, and how it can be possible to say, “You’re not getting older; you’re getting better.” In this presentation, written as he turned 75, he will share what he has learned about the mature mind from SFU courses and his personal experience, and then invite comments, questions and discussion.
Hugh has had three paid careers, as an accountant in public practice in the UK and Canada, as a corporate manager with SFU and ICBC, and as a teacher and writer on insurance, risk management and governance. He has earned two professional designations, Chartered Professional Accountant and Chartered Insurance Professional, and numerous certificates and diplomas—but no university degree. Hugh is a life-long leaner and volunteer who continues to follow his interests in retirement by serving on boards and committees, and by taking courses (as a student) in the Adults 55+ Program at SFU.
Maryse de la Giroday intrigued and instructed us. She started off her talk by showing a video, which was a combination of words and images and music, dealing with gold nanoparticles. She then went through the poem that she had written for this video, line by line and image by image, to explain to us the peculiarities of gold in the world of nanoparticles and nanotechnology. An engaging discussion ensued and her scientific knowledge was compellingly evident. A good time was had by all.
