Self description

Male , 62

I am 55 years old, married and live in Southampton.

I divide my work between being a mentor and project manager with Career Destinations at the University of Southampton and private career and personal development coaching.

I enjoy watching films, talking with friends over a beer or glass of wine, reading and running. I'm a member of St James' Anglican Church in Southampton and part of a hill walking and hiking group connected with the church. My favourite food is anything that my wife cooks.

Life experiences


I have a first class honours degree in Corporate Communication and used to have my own Public Relations and Communications business. I coach individuals and organisations on how to get their message across more effectively.

Career Guidance

I work with the Careers Guidance department at the University of Southampton, called Career Destinations. I manage a Career Mentoring Scheme that trains and links people who work in, or have experience of, a particular career sector with students who want to find out about what's involved in working in that sector.

Business Start up and Development

Having run my own small business and advised others about how to start a business or develop one, I can offer advice on the three elements of running a successful company:

Finding an Idea that works
Funding an idea that Works
Flourishing in business

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I have always found it fulfilling to pass on whatever knowledge or experience I have gained in life and work. Working in coaching and mentoring plus being with higher education careers guidance, my motivation is to help others, especially the 'next gerneration, to be clear about what motivates them and to match that motivation with an appropriate career and lifestyle.

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!'
