Hello Rob and welcome to the list.

I have had a look at your Resume and had a few
suggestions/comments/improvements. Some are just personal taste and
you don't actually have to implement all of these suggestions.

First. There is a known issue with Safari (maybe others) with an
<object> element. There is a default of something like 200px height
and width. So you will want to add a CSS rule that says something
object.include { height: 0px; width: 0px;}

You have the following in your hCard:
<span class="honorific-suffix">BSc. (Hons)</span>
BSc. looks like an ABBR to me. (it is optional) but you could add some
semantics here.

I know it is commented out, but you have the following:
<!--<address class="adr">
<span class="street-address">16 Dryden Street</span>,
<span class="locality">Burnley</span> <span class="postal-code">BB12 8TQ</span>

That is not actually the correct semantic use for the <address>
element. There have been several other thread (and probably who
webpages) dedicated to what it really means.

You have:
<span class="type">Mobile</span>
That should be:
<span class="type">Cell</span>

You have:
<a class="org url" href="http://www.versatilia.com">Versatilia Ltd</a>
This is a company (you use class="org"). The FN property is required
for an hCard, so that should be:
<a class="fn org url" href="http://www.versatilia.com">Versatilia Ltd</a>
This goes for all your vevents

Otherwise, it looks pretty good. Once you have made those changes, run
it through Tails and X2V to see what the vCard/iCal output is, and see
if that is what you expected.

The page currently validates
which is great! Microformats work best on valid HTML.
