Self description

Male , 38

i was born and raised in rugby and managed to escape my small-town midlands existence by moving first to birmingham and now london. i currently run a volunteering charity having spent most of my life as a volunteer, community activist and social entrepreneur. i also chair a charity sending recycled educational resources to tanzania. singing, songwriting, football, cricket, volunteering and friends are my hobbies.

Life experiences

social entrepreneurship / volunteering

i co-founded an international volunteering organisation based at birmingham university, which is now running programmes across several african and south american countries

being a young chief executive

i became a chief executive of a charity at 25, and the chair of another one when i was 28. this has provided me with some fantastic experiences, but also i've had to prove myself in working with people twice my age and many times more experienced

careers in the voluntary sector

i'm a bit of an unofficial careers adviser to alot of my friends, so i might be able to help you if you're starting out along this path.

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!'
