I am the author of Your First Job, an essential guide to entering the world of work for the first time (and First Job? a first month survival guide is available as a free ebook at .

My day job is as a partner and co-founder of a private equity business where I’m involved in a portfolio of trading businesses as investor, director or both.

I sought a career in business rescue and turnaround from the outset, obtaining an MBA, and then an accountancy qualification and insolvency license while working in business recovery service in the UK and Africa, being seconded into a bank, and then setting up in business as an independent executive and finance professional.

I am the author of a number of practical guide books for business owners on strategy, management, finance, and creating and realising business value, and have been actively involved in business training and education having spoken at a number of leading UK business schools.

I write books for people entering work and a series of business guides for owner managers
