At one stage in my career I found that
superimposed on my hi-tech work and professional institution
activities were puzzling veiled communications and attempts to
teach me behavioural practices which were far from my liking.
Moreover, make progress in my career, changes in my values were being required of me and all
of this was without my consent. I deduced that I was involved in
a top-level talent development and placement scheme but I did not
see why it should be applied to me. I did not consider myself to
be particularly talented; I had taken quite easily to hi-tech
science and engineering and had specialised in electronics but I
did not regard this as a great achievement. I had no thought of
making a fortune by exploiting my knowledge and skills. I wanted
an interesting career alongside a happy family and community life
rooted in my Christian faith.
It is only when I recognised why
others considered me of great value in enhancing their corporate
prestige and prosperity that I could make sense of my
extraordinary experiences. The key to that recognition was that
my non-technical attributes were regarded as an exceptional complement to
my hi-tech background. This led me to carry out a great
deal of research into advanced organisational behaviour,
particularly behavioural technology and veiled communication, a
pre-digital form of encryption. With this enhanced understanding
of the mindsets and practices of the talent developers I was in a
much better position to impart to others an understanding of what
had taken place.
It is in the last few years that I have
compiled an overt career autobiography which concentrates on talent
development processes. Technical, managerial and personal content
has been curtailed. Because disinformation may have found its way
into Establishment and other archives, a number of images have
been embedded in the text by way of verification as well as to
provide context. Sources include diaries, notes, letters,
publications, programmes, committee papers, photos, cuttings,
literature research and earlier papers.
