”He who every morning plans the transactions of the day,
and follows that plan, carries a thread that will guide
him through a labyrinth of the most busy life”

- Victor Hugo

My Story

My career has been a wonderful adventure. From starting out in the oily workshops of Birmingham in the early 1970’s, I launched my first business in the 1980’s supplying wholesale office furniture to retailers throughout the UK. The business grew and I began importing office furniture from Malaysia, Italy & Thailand in the 1990’s which was when I began working closely with Commercial Attaches in London and around the world to help me source products.

I was the original founder and Managing Director of The British Business Club helping British businesses establish links and markets worldwide. I went on the build The World Business Fair & The Commonwealth Business Club, again to encourage business partnerships between entrepreneurs globally.

Over the years I have worked closely with local and national business groups, chambers of commerce and trade associations to assist small businesses trying establish new markets.

In 2021 after 50 years on the career treadmill I decided to take semi-retirement and myself and my wife moved to the east coast of Spain just south of Valencia. I now concentrate my time on helping new business owners as a “Remote Business Mentor” as well as writing a series of business advice E-books that will be available on Amazon very soon.

My Commitment To You

I'm dedicated to helping aspiring entrepreneurs achieve what they really want from their business careers. When we work together, you can count on me to provide you with sound advice, to answer your questions, and help you find the successful business person that lies within you. No lecturing, no jargon, no evangelising – Just straight talking!

When you partner with me as your business mentor, I will challenge you to think differently and approach every challenge from a different perspective. The answers to all business problems are already out there – and I will help you find them.

Away From Business

I am an avid sports fan who follows football (lifelong Liverpool FC fan), boxing, rugby union and F1. I do like to keep myself fit and here in Spain I particularly enjoy walking the local mountains.
