It is only when someone asks 'can I have your CV?' do you realise how long you have worked without one. We proved that it is possible, but here anyway are vain souvenirs collected over the years.
Communicating was Roger Frost's passion and it was his 'day job' since 1988. He wrote for publishers who talk to an education audience. These included textbook publishers, newspapers, magazines and companies, PR firms and government agencies.
The samples come from books, brochures, product catalogues, software manuals, teaching materials, case studies, web sites and advertisements.
Roger Frost wobbled admirably through around 20 radio interviews and after-dinner talks about science, education and computers.
