Meet the Author

Hello. I'm a trainer, coach and author specialising in one to one skills. I understand that busy people want accessible, practical information. They rarely have time or inclination to read complicated tomes, which is why my books are packed with instantly usable techniques and tips. I also coach other professionals to help them turn their ideas into a book.

As well as looking after Careertrain I have Spring Development,which offers training and development to organisations and individuals that want to flourish and get the best out of their working lives.

I recently moved to Banbury in Oxfordshire, UK after many years in The Fens, working in and around Cambridgeshire. Outside of work, I enjoy looking after my newly inherited amazingly beautiful garden, exploring The Cotswolds, and seeking out live music, arts and crafts.
