Self description

Male , 57

Having run several successful businesses, I became a business adviser/consultant some fifteen years ago. I have been a mentor for the Prince's Trust and am currently a Business Adviser in a London Enterprise Agency.
In my spare time, I belong to a theatre group for which I wrote my first script, a pantomime version of Cinderella. I also directed its first production. I am now working on a second pantomime and have a number of other script ideas for conventional comedy plays.

Life experiences

Business Start-up Advice

Having established three businesses of my own and advised hundreds of people in starting their businesses, I can provide excellent advice to anyone wishing to start a business.

Business Growth Advice

Having grown a number of businesses and advised hundreds of others, I can help anyone looking to expand.
A key specialism is cross-border expansion or foreign direct investment. This is an area in which I have had both hands-on experience and advisory experience within a Government-funded agency to promote FDI.

Playwright and Production

I have already mentioned my script writing but I have also had experience of directing, stage management, light and sound operation and just about everything to do with putting on a show. Happy to advise anyone on anything connected with theatre as well.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Having previously mentored a number of business start-ups for the Prince's Trust and as a professional adviser, this is something that comes naturally to me. I am happy to devote a little time to help others that may be struggling to get something off the ground. Other people have been generous with their time and advice to me in the past, s this is an opportunity to pay something back.

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!'
