Self description

Male , 72

I am old and possibly wise. Almost retired I spend a few hours each month coaching for one of the World top 20 business schools. I have been very lucky in gaining experience, for instance I had been round the World, twice, before I was 20. I spent 35 yrs creating and developing small businesses, not always successfully. There are some things we can learn only through failure.
I live and work in Yorkshire and Wales. I love wine, interesting conversation and the enthusiasm of youth.

Life experiences

Starting in business

I advise entrepreneurs for a living. I have been creating and developing businesses for over 20 years. I am SFEDI accredited, entrepreneur friendly. I have made all the mistakes and should be able to help you avoid them.

Social enterprise and ethics

I have been advising social enterprise, in Yorkshire, for the past 2 years or more. Social Enterprise is business with social or environmental objectives. I can also help traditional businesses with their ethics and social responsibility.


Life sometimes seems to be all downs and no ups. Perhaps you need to experience the downs to appreciate the ups. As the saying goes there is always someone worse off. I can help you lift yourself out of the lows by describing just how bad it has been for me and what I was able to do about it and who and what helped me.

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

I work as a mentor. I charge a lot of money to those who can afford it. There are lots of others who can't afford the cost of well considered advice. I would like the opportunity to offer the benefit of my education and experience to those who feel they need it but can't consult me professionally, in way that doesn't compromise my professional status.

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!'
