SlideShare & Recommendations on LinkedInProfessional & personal background With 28 years successful experience in retail and account management, I have increased profits for and on behalf of a number of blue chip companies ranging from retail & global brands to construction & manufacturing industries.

Whilst studying, and prior to embarking on a business career, I spent 4 years intermittently training with the British Army in the UK & Germany and jungle training with Royal New Zealand Regiment in Singapore & W.Malaysia. Additionally, I was a Caseworker, for the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) in Singapore & Indonesia, using my bi-lingual skills representing the Joint Voluntary Agency - an arm of the American Embassy in S.E.Asia. Blog. My wife, Angeline, is also from Singapore however we met in London 25 years ago! We have 3 children: 2 girls and a boy who are 18, 16 & 13. They certainly keep us busy and are simply a joy to have!

I love travel and, having had the opportunity to explore the world extensively in my younger years, I'm sharing this experience with my family. We've so far been to places as far east as Australia and as far west as California, with my birthplace, Singapore, being a focal destination.
