Exhibitions and Conferences
I spent a number of years working for or running businesses connected to the exhibition and conference producing and staging industry. Notable in that period were involvement with the City of Birmingham bid to stage the Olympics with the staging of the presentation to the IOC in Lausanne. I devised and helped deliver a show called “Birmingham Invites You” which, over two years with a team of five technicians and involving UK Embassies, we took around the world to 33 cities from Japan and Hong Kong to New York and Washington and all the major cities in Europe.
Working in industrial and commercial public relations.
Writing and photographing motorsport, running a business called Motor Sport Press Service and publishing a monthly newspaper called Midland Motorscope.
I cut my teeth in journalism on the Walsall Observer, and ran the newsroom and read the news at the week ends on Radio BRMB.
Educated in Birmingham
Married with two children and four grandchildren.
Against medical advice because I had chronic asthma and was 100% covered in eczema, my mom and dad adopted me. I shall be grateful for ever. The books are dedicated to my long suffering mom.
Born in Birmingham in 1944.
