For many years I worked as a freelance consultant and management trainer (under the name Touchstone Training & Consultancy); my background was in marketing and I specialised in all aspects of communication conducting courses in many forms: conferences, in-company programmes, public seminars and one-to-one mentoring sessions.
During this time I also wrote a large amount of business material - books, articles and training materials – and did so in many ways including co-writing books, ghost writing books and editing books composed of many chapters by different authors.
Currently, my range of activities is changing:
Details of training activities and of my various books appear, clearly labelled, on this site; also details about my background and experience.
Action: If you feel I can assist in any way – or you want to purchase a book – please do make contact with me.

"Smile because it happened"
Places, people and incidents in the land of smiles. A new book of travel writing in the style of my "Beguiling Burma" and "Smile because it happened" , which is about Thailand. Both these are £9.99 - and the same deal applies, a pound off and free postage.
"Smile because it happened" has been getting some really good reviews recently:
"(The author) knows happy, humid, elephant-loving Thailand very well and his anecdotal book about the country’s irrepressible cheerfulness is informative and, in places, very funny. His style has that effortlessly chatty edge, which looks easy but is actually one of the hardest things for a writer to bring off."
