By day (and rather frequently by night), I help companies, organisations and individuals understand, protect, manage and defend their reputations.

This can mean advising on and/or handling problems of a kind that can negatively shape how a brand, organisation or individual is seen. I also prepare my clients' in how to meet these kinds of challenges.

On this theme, I have written a well-received book - Managing Online Reputation: How to Protect your Company On Social Media (Palgrave Macmillan, 2015), described variously as 'compelling and incisive', 'a must-read for any manager or director who cares about their organisation' and 'the art of reputation for the digital age'.

Outside work, my interests range from reading, writing, politics/current affairs and documentary films, to travel, music, tennis, cycling and swimming. I'm also pretty keen on food, especially Asian, and wine, notably Rhone reds and Priorat.

I am currently based in London, and travel extensively for work and pleasure, mostly across Europe and Asia. I was born in Hong Kong and have lived and worked abroad for much of my life.
