Welcome to my new website

I sit on the Board at Crowdbnk and I am a Strategic Advisor to StartUpCapitalVenture 2 in San Francisco and 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.



@Mettletest No am travelling in Canada where there was a shooting in Parl yesterday; passports need redesigning!


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

I am a Patron at RIBA anda member of its Library Committee and I have just been asked to join the Sounding Board at the Design Council.

I am trying to put the funding together for an Internet Policy Institute.

I moved at the end of September and so understandably news has been slight. As we all know a death in the family, a divorce and moving are the three most stressful events which can happen to you. Nonetheless, the move has gone well, just my books and study to resolve even though I donated nearly 300 to the BOA's Olympic reference library at the East London University and a further 500 to Trinity Hospice shops for resale...... and, I need to find space for all my paintings....
