About this recording

We are all aware of the issues of working offshore in the oil and gas industry, but Gwyneth Sutherland describes the stresses and challenges of being the wife of an offshore worker. She explains how her husband Brian missed out on major milestones in family life such as the occasion when their son was awarded his black belt in karate.

Gwyneth talks about the importance of the family support network, particularly when a husband or partner is offshore.

In addition to talking about family life as a child, then as a wife and mother, she looks back on the development of her own career in electronics, IT and teaching.
