I qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Personnel Management while working for the British Printing Corporation in the 1980’s. I studied Psychology, Economics, Statistics and Industrial Relations.
I saw the introduction of the first Equal Opportunities Legislation and brought this to an industry where both management and trades unions were fiercely opposed to it. I continue to campaign for equal rights and opportunities for everyone regardless of gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
A decade later I started a training consultancy and agency that matched trainers to suppliers and later sold this to an international agency. This led me to start advising other business owners on how to achieve their goals.

The Business Hub
I co-founded and presented a commercial FM radio show for five years, interviewing many leading and emerging entrepreneurs. This led to producing two podcasts: The A-Z of Business Success and The Social Media Show which ran for 58 episodes and featured many of the early adopters in the newly emerging social media world.
