I got my break into journalism in the late 1990s when I was offered the chance to edit a business news teletext service for BBC World television. The service was produced by an independent production company - Intelfax.  

It was around that time that I also began to write features on the internet as a business tool.  It was a lucrative freelance market.  The dot com bubble was expanding rapidly, retailers were rushing to grab a piece of the online action and the shelves of newsagents were bulging with net-related publications. I wrote regularly for Internet Works, Internet World,  Internet Business and   IT Week.  Eventually, I joined e.Business magazine as a staff writer and was promoted to editor a few months later. didn't survive the painful implosion of the dot com bubble and I went on to freelance full time. It was an exciting time. There was still a huge amount of interest in online business strategies and I was able to get my work into the nationals  -  namely the Guardian,  Sunday Times and Mail on Sunday - for the first time.

However,  I began to build on my specialist subjects to include fast growth business,    management, HR and corporate finance and pensions regulation.  Thanks to a two year spell editing PLC Director magazine I also became something of an expert on corporate governance.  

Today,  I write regularly for and  for a range of  magazines and newspapers. In addition, I have broad experience of customer publishing and content marketing. My work in this firled includes editing publications for blue chip customers, blogging and feature writing.

As an author,  I edit and write business books, including: How to Grow Your Business ( co edited with David Lester), Business the Jamie Oliver way (Wiley), Business the Simon Cowell Way (Wiley) and How to Grow Your Business Overseas (Crimson).
