Duncan is the founder of Fifth Sense, the first UK-based organisation set up to support sufferers of smell and taste disorders, such as anosmia, the loss of the sense of smell. Fifth Sense aims to raise awareness of such conditions, provide education on the role that the sense of smell plays in our lives, and facilitate and support research into smell and taste disorders and potential treatments for them.

Huge thanks to you, Jo and John for such an amazing week. I came away feeling really excited and inspired, not just by the course and the brilliant guest speakers but by the amazing people I met on the course – thanks everyone! It was a really fascinating week for me, and I’m in the process of writing up a blog post for the Fifth Sense website about how same of the things I learned may be beneficial to other anosmia sufferers. I’ll email the link round when I’m finished. Also, if everyone who uses twitter or Facebook could follow/like Fifth Sense please that would be great, I’d really appreciate your support going forwards. Details in my email signature below. Look forward to some interesting discussion on the Linkedln page.
