Biography:

Following a decade in the advertising industry (mostly working for Ogilvy & Mather), I ran an international economics consultancy before becoming CEO of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society and then taking a senior position in Higher Education. Now semi-retired, I'm a trustee of various charities including the Aylesbury Food Bank, which benefit from some of my speaking engagements.

I was also a trustee of the Carnegie UK Trust (hence my interest in the steel magnate), and in my youth I took a Double First in English Literature at Oxford (hence my interest in John Donne).
