    Good topic, I found this very interesting. Great that it is on video as I can't attend most talks in England

    I agree with some of what was said, but law and medicine are not representative of most professions. Fundamentally, I think a professional is someone who has the competence, training, knowledge, and skills to do a job properly, and who uses those qualities to make sure that the job is done properly. Law and medicine both ensure that people working in those professions meet these requirements. IT often does not, but it should.
