I was born in England and have had successful multiple careers working in teaching, in multi-national IT, in supporting entrepreneurs and as an international consultant helping to establish entrepreneurial support organisations in Europe and the Middle East.
I have combined my work with an extensive media career including appearing on business programmes for BBC, airline in-flight programmes, national CDs, videos and foreign media. This has resulted in a number of published articles and my first book was published by Bookboon in early 2013.
I am particularly passionate about the need for entrepreneurship in the 21st century and the failure of the education system to foster the necessary skills. I regularly speak at conferences, business meetings and universities in order to promote the subject.
Whilst I back up my work with extensive research and study, the foundation of my work comes from a lifetime of practical experience coupled with positive feedback from those who I interact with.
I now live in Antalya, Turkey from where I continue to work locally and internationally.
