Biography

I am a former journalist who has been CEO of media and marketing companies in the UK, Europe and Australia. I was also Chair, for 15 years, of a charity supporting vulnerable young people in mainstream boarding schools throughout the UK. Today, I am a non-executive director of, and consultant to, media and financial companies in the UK, US and AsiaPacific. I am also Chair of Boarding School Partnerships, an agency of the Department for Education which helps facilitate boarding school places for children in and on the edge of local authority care. I also write the award-winning Flashes & Flames blog on global media.
