Creating original ideas and connecting passionate people.
In 2004 I founded Alertacall, an award winning company that brings together ingenious technology and passionate people to provide daily contact to tens of thousands of older and higher needs people.
I’m also the founder of many other ventures ranging from publicly traded companies with hundreds of people through to micro-businesses. Most were started with only modest amounts of upfront capital and several achieved material levels of success.
I’m currently writing a book about the characteristics of successful founders – a topic I’m regularly invited to speak about. I’m also an adviser to several other founders, and an Honorary Teaching fellow and “Entrepreneur in Residence” at Lancaster University.
As a Trustee I support The Silver Line, the nationwide charity and freephone helpline for older people founded by Dame Esther Rantzen and I also support several youth development causes.
