Dr. Seán Brophy, who worked as a management consultant and author in private practice in Dublin, Ireland, passed away on February 14, at the age of 73. He had been ill for a while and had been in hospital since the day after Christmas. Seán specialised in educating clients to make sense of their lives so that they can be more effective at solving their own problems particularly in the context of personal or organisational change. He was a leading practitioner in the application of Personal Construct Psychology, the psychology of the whole person or the psychology of change to the context of life in organizations. Originally he worked as an engineer and manager in industry for 20 years. For the last 30 years he had acted as a consultant in Personal Construct Psychology to a variety of organi-sations in Ireland, the UK and the United States. He is the author of The Strategic Management of Irish Enterprise and several books of poetry.

He will be remembered as an eminent member of the worldwide PCP community – and as a poet in his own right.
