Welcome to my new website

I am a NED @ Crowdbnk and a Strategic Advisor to StartUpCapitalVenture 2 in San Francisco; I am also on the CITI Advisory Board @ Columbia University, NY.

I chair Trinity Hospice, Clapham, NISE NHS Innovations SE, Major Stanley's Trust at OURFC and the Great Retail Revival Foundation.



The Addicks are beginning to look like relegation candidates; the Belgian experiment has not worked time for a takeover.


I founded the Women's Sport Foundation (1984),, the first family computer channel, on BSkyB (1995), the Oxford University Internet Institute (2000), the Parliamentary Sports Fellowship scheme (2004) & a Digital Day for the Nation (2007) which is now a week.

I am on the RFU SE Legacy Board for the RWC 2015, an Ambassador to the European Brain Council's Year of the Brain 2014/15 and sit on the Senior Advisors Group at Pagefield.

Book Trust This afternoon, I dropped into Book Trust to see Jane Morris to chat through our plans for our new Development Board which I chair. They have just moved to Battersea from Wandsworth.
Two years ago, I started a travel scholarship worth £625 p.a. for a Year 12 or 13 student at Colchester RGS, my old secondary school.
