The February 2021 UK Branch Newsletter celebrates an OD who has built a vintage Jaguar from scratch; the way two other ODs are revolutionisng the way we see the game of rugby. And yet another OD gets to grips with the linguistic relationship between the pandemic and rugby terms.  
You can also read about how the upwardly mobile are, well, upwardly mobile and a 1974 OD recalls, via a documentary he's just completed, the tumultuous 1974 Lions Tour of South Africa from both a sporting and political point of view.

And have a look at our diary of events and if you're in the UK, join!

The ODU, Hilton and Michaelhouse business and job forum on LinkedIn is up and running and and with over 600 members, ODs have expressed appreciation for the valuable support it has given them. Think about becoming part of the group.

And lastly, there seems to be no end to the literary output of our ODs.
