On Tuesday after teaching a class at Nottingham Trent 10am-12noon I jumped on the 12.45pm train to Edinburgh. I arrived at 5.30pm and by 6.30pm I was giving a talk to the IMA Scottish Branch. Busy day!

The invite to my talk went to staff and postgraduate students at Napier University and IMA members more generally in the Branch. I gave most of the content from my careers talk but filled this out with some background on the University Liaison initiative and some of my activities, including other talks, careers fairs, the RUMS group, University Liaison Grants, Mathematics Today and the Student Section, the Younger Members Group, Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, this blog, my Twitter page and the podcast.

I’m happy to report that a member of the audience has already passed on what I said, including a link to this blog and the Maths Careers website from the maths4edinburgh blog.
