Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I am a product of lifelong learning.

I started as a machine-tool operator, went to adult vocational training were I got a mechanical fitter CAP (vocational training certificate). I became an engineer in diesel engines, heavy trucks and earthmoving equipment through on the job learning. I then moved to be a training designer and became a consultant in human resources. I then went to University while working as a consultant and got a DESS (master) in business administration. I needed to add theory to my practical knowledge, so I did another two years of University while working and got a DEA (half-way between master and PhD) in management science focused on strategy.

However, I must say I learnt a lot through two channels:  debating in bistrots and reading literature.

I also qualify as a father of two daughters (but they might deny me the qualification...)

I used to be highly qualified as a night reveller and a lover, but I need retraining (or at least refreshing) in both disciplines.
