My primary expertise is crafting captivating Escape Room games, managing their operation within my businesses, and distributing these games to other enterprises for their own operation.

Every day, I lead an Escape Room company along with its franchise arm, while also providing occasional advice and support to an e-learning and software firm as an Executive Director. Additionally, I serve as a trustee for a charity and volunteer as a Director for a community project I co-founded.

I work hard to set up businesses and learn how to improve them so they don’t take over life. I value time more than money and enjoy detailing how businesses can be run efficiently

I also like to help other businesses and organisations understand how to run more efficiently, better marketing, target quality customers, increase profit, and grow.

I am based in the South West. Married to Justina, Dad to Ryan (12) and Amelia (10). Family come first!

Key skills:

  • Creative writing (I love to write enjoyable Escape Room Games)
  • Business establishment, compliance and growth
  • Effective marketing, increasing sales, and healthy turnover
  • Financial management and fundraising for small businesses and million-pound-plus turnover companies
  • Offshore development teams, planning, communication and management
  • Bid writing and winning grant money (over £500k in grants won for various charities, community groups and third sector)

Above everything, I believe in fair, kind and ethical business.

I am ethically trained.
