Details Ian Gunn will speak on "Here comes the failed bank manager". Part of Ian's biography reads; Ian Gunn is a former senior banker and prison governor and since retiring five years ago he has been an enrichment speaker for an agency that provides speakers to cruise lines. During his second career, in the Scottish Prison Service, Ian was the Governor-in-charge of four very different prisons and in his talk 'Here Comes The Failed Bank Manager', Ian will tell you what life is really like 'behind bars', introduce you to some interesting and infamous prisoners, emerge you into the culture of prison life in Britain, and even tell you why he had to ban his mother-in-law from visiting one of his prisons!' Being the first meeting since lockdown, we hope to have a time to socialise over drinks and light refreshments before Ian's talk.
