I have enjoyed a 30+ year career in communications, working in both the private and public sectors.

My numerous roles have given me experience of in-house and consultancy functions for a diverse range of organisations including Blackpool Borough Council, Smirnoff Vodka, De Vere Hotels, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Pork Farms and the legendary Rubik’s cube (although despite meeting the inventor on numerous occasions, I have never been able to master the puzzle….).

I am semi-retired and in addition to my role with n-compass I chair a local NSPCC fundraising committee. I also work as a part time consultant to Albert Dock in Liverpool and lecture in PR at UCLan in Preston.
