About the seminar

When the late Hamish Carmichael retired from ICL, he set to work to collect and publish two volumes of anecdotes told by numerous ICL employees past and present. In every story Hamish’s gentle wit shines though and this afternoon will be a tribute to a much loved and respected gentlemen who passed away in the summer of 2017.

Before he died Hamish had planned to publish a third (and final?) volume with an expanded scope to include stories from the Society and from other sources in the industry. He asked Dik and his widow Kathy to complete this long-awaited work in his absence and this work remains in progress (all contributions gratefully received).

The afternoon will draw on both the published and unpublished resources we have at our disposal. The four speakers will take it in turn to read their favourite anecdotes. Perhaps the audience will feel moved to join in. Who knows? In keeping with our usual December meeting traditions, the tone will be light-hearted and we hope to send each of you away with a spring in your step, a smile on your lips and joy in your heart.


The session will start with registration at 14:00pm, talks starting at 14:30pm,  finish by 16:30pm.

 

Refreshments will be provided. 

 

The event is free of charge, but will require registration to ensure there are no capacity restrictions.  

 

For overseas delegates who wish to attend the event please note that BCS does not issue invitation letters.
