About Us

 

If you haven’t already visited it, do take a look at the ‘About’ section in the main navigation, which gives you a complete overview of the site and what it is trying to achieve. 

 

Probably42 sits within The Knowledge, Skills and Experience Foundation.  The Foundation is a non-profit making Social Enterprise organisation. 

 

The Foundation and Probably42 are the brainchild of Tony Clack. Tony was the founder of LaterLife, the UK’s leading provider of retirement courses, which he set up following a distinguished career in the IT industry. Tony has now retired from running LaterLife but as part of his own active retirement plan has used his personal Knowledge, Skills and Experience to establish Probably42 together with a number of colleagues.


At the Foundation we hope to develop a friendly community of interest amongst those who would like to engage in intelligent debate and use their Knowledge, Skills and Experience to develop well-thought through and practical proposals that benefit society.


A formative group of us meet in a face-to-face ‘Pie and Pint’ meeting each month to discuss, in a structured and balanced way, the major issues the UK faces. The ideas generated are made visible here on Probably42, for others to contribute to, or to add their own ideas and are periodically assembled into a ‘Manifesto of Ideas’. This manifesto is then the centrepiece for making ideas visible to decision-makers.


Our aim is to encourage others, like yourself, to do the same, setting up or joining a Pie and Pint meeting, or even just contributing on the web. You’ll find the meetings are very enjoyable and sociable with plenty of humour, as well as producing some useful output. To find out more, take a look at our face-to-face section.


Over time we want Probably42 and the Foundation to be run by proactive individuals drawn from the Member population and not be dependent on those of us that initiated it.

 

We hope you will join us and enjoy making a small contribution to providing the answer to life, the universe and everything!
