“I have been an instructor at CAT Driver Training since 2008. I specialise in coaching students in Roadcraft based driving courses on behalf of ambulance and advanced driving organisations. My background is as a telecommunications engineer, specialising in radio systems for various government departments and BT. From this background, I moved into engineering management as a systems engineer and then spent four years working in client relationship management, specialising in facilitating conflict resolution cases for senior management.
Early retirement was taken from the telecommunications industry in 2000. Having spent the past 30 years + working in my spare time as a volunteer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists and RoSPA Advanced Drivers and Riders, I launched my own business as a driving development specialist.
According to my friends, as a “driving nut”, I have worked on many types of vehicles, and had the pleasure of owning and driving some exciting classic vehicles. I am passionate about driving safely for fun and business purposes and have been fortunate enough to have been trained and certificated to work in the emergency services, thanks in part due my past positions in certain government departments.
In recent years, I have owned a number of BMW models. However, I am currently driving an Audi. Who knows what the replacement will be, but for sure, it will be fun!”
