Some deep inner weakness has prevented me making the concerted effort it takes to shake-off the Lancaster University Alumni organization. As a result they keep chasing me with news of people I don’t know and invitations to switch to a Lancaster University Credit Card. At some point I filled in a form divulging my job – possibly in an attempt to stop them asking me for money. Today a letter came through inviting me to a Media Networking event they are running in London. I’m not a Networker so I won’t going, the idea makes my skin crawl, but I was interested to note that the event’s lead attraction is Mark Wells.
Mark Wells was contemporaneous with some of Stan’s Cafe at Lancaster in the late 80s. He was notable for being the only person on campus to wear glasses with coloured frames. It seems he knew where he was heading, even in those early days. Now he is Head of Entertainment at ITV, which is pretty impressive. I imagine that is equivalent to be Head of Breakfast Cereal at Kelloggs.
As I cycled off to work I found myself thinking “Mark Wells, didn’t he do well”.
