1. When did you work at the International School of Geneva and what was/were your role(s)?
I was Director General of the Foundation of the International School of Geneva from 1991-1999.

2. Describe your life today, where you live and what you do.
I am now retired (since 2006), living with my wife Jennifer (who taught clarinet/saxophone at Ecolint) in East Anglia, UK. I write quite a lot and I am still in close touch with the IB (I became Director General of the IB from 1999 to 2006).

3. What are your strongest memories of working at Ecolint?
My main memories of Ecolint concern the teaching staff.  Although - as in any human enterprise - quality was variable, I saw more 'inspirational teaching' at Ecolint than in any of my previous jobs. I never heard an Ecolint teacher 'talk down' to an Ecolint student.

4. To what extent do you like to keep in touch with former students and colleagues?
I think one keeps in touch with those with whom one wants to keep in touch! Then there are the special occasions, for example World Reunions and more recently the reception in London.
