I consider myself to be a genuine and warm human being, and I love people and will ALWAYS help if I can. I'm a mad keen rugby fan - LEICESTER TIGERS being my club. Retired squash player and sometime golfer. Recently bitten by the cycling bug, but not a MAMIL (yet) Professionally, I am working in the developing UC space having worked in the telecommunication sector for most of my adult life in various sales and leadership positions. I bring my passion for people into my role paying particular attention to motivation and coaching - which is my way of investing into other people's futures and successes. I took the opportunity to educate myself on all things "social" whilst taking a year out from traditional employment in 2009, immersing myself in the world of social media and networking, and became an avid tweeter. I now consider myself to be a leading exponent of social networking and social media within my sector. During my year out I also studied NLP, and gained INLPTA certificates in Leadership, Coaching and Sales from @DeltaTCC. I have a very loving, solid and supportive family environment with my wife and 2 young daughters at home, and 3 older (grown up) children living in the Midlands. I network vigorously looking for ways to help others and learn new "stuff". I am as hungry for knowledge and learning opportunities, as I ever was as a child, and read whenever I get the opportunity. I LOVE technology, and am always on the look out for leading edge technologies and innovation.
