Self description

Male , 66

I'm a businessman and an engineer being a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

I started as an apprentice in BT and became a senior manager managing a team of over 200 people.

I then left and started my own business in 1988 and this company creates most of my wealth.

I run a mentoring and consultancy company called Wise Grey Owl and help small companies grow.

I like charity treks (diaries online - please ask me if interested) and I like the freedom of motorcycling. I have two grown up children and three grandchildren.

I write novels too.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
