Self description

Male , 47

Account director in a major high street retailer in the UK. Work alot with government. my role is a senior position and I work with executives/board level and with people from all levels in the organisation. My job is to look after our senior clients and make sure we have a good commercial relationship with them.

In my mid 40s - I live in the east Midlands with my wife and two young daughters (both under 5). I have two teenage sons from a previous marriage who live near London.

In terms of hobbies - its mostly being a dad! But I do like reggae and, when I have spare time I do fundraising for forest conservation in Jamaica - an island I love. I like cooking (for a hobby not a chore!). I don't like sport like football. But I am getting into rugby as my youngest son is getting good at it. I recently ran the great north run - for the National Autistic Society - my eldest son is mildly autistic. I am a visiting lecturer at a business school.

Life experiences


Its something I'm interested in and already do mentoring at work

Why mentor on horsesmouth?

Mandela said 'it takes a village to raise a child'. My sons don't live with me and they are starting to benefit from other men (my ex wifes cousins, uncles etc). Its made me think I could do the same for others - kind of giving 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!'
