About The Speaker...
My name is Julian Le Good, I am a sixty something-ish retired architect. I consider myself fortunate, I trained and spent my early years during a golden age. An age without fax machines, email and mobile ‘phones. An age of “double elephant” drawing boards with ebony edges, drawing pens which forever gummed up and erasing machines which burned holes in our drawings.
Coffee breaks, tea breaks ( with trolleys and buns) and Eric’s excuses for never coming in on a Monday.
The Royal Institute of British Architects told us that we had five days in which to reply to a letter or respond to a request for information from the builder.
The fax machine reduced that to five hours, the email to five minutes and the mobile to five seconds.
I was one of the fortunate ones, I witnessed the evolution from drawing boards propped up on brick samples, yards, feet & inches via “draughting machines” to Computer Aided Design and 3d Modelling.
About Their Talks...
I do not charge a fee to speak, but I do encourage the gift of a donation ( proportional to the size of the audience multiplied by the number of laughs I get) of which I will donate all of to charity.
I support Macmillan Cancer Support and Imperial Cancer Research Fund who have assisted me as I journey through cancer . I can talk about these further when I speak. Expenses are welcome as I subsist on benefits & charity.
