Self description

Male , 55

I've spent nearly 30 years working in sales and leadership roles including founding more than one start-up. Most of my career has been in electronics including hardware and software, although I am now fascinated by web-based businesses.

I particularly enjoy the entrepreneurial, small-business environment and left the company I was working for in June 2009 when it had grown too big and bureaucratic for my liking.

Although I've got a strong technology background I'm really a "people person". I have post-graduate certificate in Coaching

I've founded more than one start-up including gaining £2M VC funding. I am happy to advise on your business plan, funding strategy, start-up team, etc.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I'm interested in mentoring on horsesmouth for three reasons... 1. It's fun and rewarding to help people. 2. I'm at the stage in my career where I'd like to "give something back" and have 30 years of experience to work with. 3. Long term I'm interested in mentoring on a professional basis and this is a great way to dip my toes in the water ;)

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!'
