The Inventors Association of Australia (Western Australia) invites you and your guests to our members meeting with guest speaker Barry Lloyd.
Our guest speaker for August is Barry Lloyd. He makes no claim to being an inventor but has been involved in some interesting “creations” over many years, in activities as diverse as the Hotel industry, specialised motor vehicles and electronics.
Born in Sydney in 1934 Barry grew up in Cowra NSW (or failed to grow up, as he says). Aged 20, he lived in Bondi (for surfing reasons) and became involved in motor sport. By being in the right place at the right time went on to drive rally cars for five international car companies including Mercedes Benz.
Barry has certainly had an amazing life so far with 19 different jobs from working as a sheep dog for a farmer who didn’t like dogs, to putting the pink in Vincents APC powders, to purchasing manager of the largest Hotel chain in the Southern Hemisphere, newspaper reporter, customs clerk, doctors receptionist, social worker and a crazy outback adventurer! He moved to Perth in 1984, to administrate a medical software/ hardware company.
He has captured some of his maniacal motoring feats in a book he wrote titled "You Can’t Get There from Here" and about 3 years ago he recorded a 12 track CD then composed and recorded a single for his 80th birthday.
Barry has done it all and his talk will centre around the unusual creations he has been part of.
We will also have networking with drinks and nibbles.
Please RSVP on the website so we can prepare for numbers.
