I am a publishing and
training professional with over 30 years' editorial and senior management
experience in companies such as McGraw-Hill, Pan Books, International
Thomson, The Open College, Butterworth-Heinemann and Pergamon Open
Learning. During my career I have commissioned and published hundreds
of books and learning materials in science, technology, social science,
business and management. I have designed, developed and published major distance learning programmes, including one of the world’s largest for ACCA,
the professional accounting body. I am accomplished at delivering
sizeable publishing and training projects on time, within budget and to
exacting quality standards.
In my spare time I promote live modern jazz in the Thames Valley, under the name of Jazz in Reading. I am also Co-chair of Reading Borough Council's Learning Disabilities Partnership Board.
