Self description

Male , 71

I have had a varied and successful business career. I was founder and managing director of three companies, two have been sold and I am now non-exec on the remaining. My experience covers a wide range of overall company activity including acquisitions, sales, marketing, HR, legal, financial etc.
But life has not been without its downs as well as ups – I was made redundant in the last recession – so I know how that rejection feels and the effort needed to get back on top. Prior to that, I was employed in the commercial property sector dealing with technical, agency, development and international matters.
I have been a counsellor with Childline and as a mentor with the Prince’s Trust.
And in amongst all the work activity, I have five children – so life is never dull! I love the breadth of work that they now encompass and with three of them living and working overseas, this allows me to follow another of my passions, to travel. Later on this year we are going on a trip to China with fr

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

It is what I do – help people wherever I can – in business or in life generally- so giving young and ‘not so young’ people both business and general support is as an extension of this philosophy. I have been lucky, but I have also worked with great people from whom I have learned and if I can pass on some of this experience, that is great. I can interact well with people and empathise with their problems. I have wide business and life experience to draw on.

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!'
