I have worked in the electronic manufacturing sector for 32 years. In the first 5 years I worked as a design engineer, using the then newly available 4-bit microcontrollers. I was also one of the first proud owners of an Acorn home computer. The following 4 years were spent gaining experience of managing teams as well as engaging with other departments like sales and marketing and getting a wider understanding of how an organisation really ticks. The next 24 years have been very spent starting and growing my own business. This has given me a wide range of experiences. I am a Princes Trust mentor and have helped numerous businesses over the last 8 years. I have 3 books published and available on Amazon. The latest one is titled "The Battle to get traffic to your website" and is aimed as an SEO primer for small business owners. Sales from my previous book "Starting and Running a PAT Testing business" has already generated 500 for the Princes Trust. I really enjoy writing and plan to produce many more books over the coming years.
