Biography

My Fellowship topic was training and education in industry. In 1993 I joined a group of British Rail managers who worked for InterCity to develop best practice across BR. I was given the task of working with the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry examinations board to write and develop an NVQ for railway storekeepers. Whilst at the London Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1994, I picked up a leaflet entitled The Chance of a Lifetime, 1995. No-one was more surprised than me that I was awarded a Fellowship. I travelled to see the best practices in the various public transport operators in Hong Kong, Australia and the USA. Over the next two years I introduced a number of strategic contracts across Great Western Trains. However, a week before Christmas 1998 I was made redundant. In 1999, I set up my own accountancy business. I tend to work with clients who need help and support. My life has been a mixture of highs and lows. There is so much that I try to share that could help other people cope with their problems. Mental health is affecting more people. I could write pages.
