ABOUT ME      

Before training to become a coach most of my career has been in Local Government.

I started working in Camden on an adventure playground in 1972 after completing a degree in Fine Art (Painting) at Hornsey College of Art. I then went to work for the Council and in 1990 I became an Assistant Director in the Leisure & Community Services Department. Amongst my range of responsibilities were the Play Service, Sports Centres & Parks. I ended my time at Camden being seconded to lead the ‘Vulnerable Older People’s Project’ in 1996, a corporate programme in partnership with Health and Voluntary Sector groups seeking to reduce the risk of vulnerability amongst elders in Camden.

After leaving Camden in 2002 I became an Associate Director with Better Government for Older People (BGOP). This activity drew


upon a wide range of partners at the cutting edge of issues relating to quality of life, and healthy living issues for older people.

My main interests now since leaving BGOP in 2006 are enjoying every moment with Jacqueline, my partner, especially running together, also Coffee which is not so much an interest as a passion bordering upon geekery. I am also the proud father of two wonderful grown-up daughters.

I trained as a coach with Management Futures Ltd.,
a national leadership and coaching consultancy. It is an accredited centre with the ILM (Institute of Leadership and Management) and I have been awarded the ILM Level 7 Diploma in Leadership Mentoring and Executive Coaching.
