I'm an Independent, genuine, friendly, aspirational, caring & honest gentleman. I work hard but I like to balance that up and try to enjoy life as much as I can.
My friends and family say I'm very open minded, have a smidgen of old fashioned values (the opening doors type), trendy, romantic, good natured and always keeping a positive approach in life.
I like to do various outdoors/indoors activities. Horse riding (learning to), motor racing (just passed my racing licence), champagne/dinner events (I open champagne bottles with a sword - it's called "Sabrage"), cooking and you can't beat a nice roast dinner and a pint at a country pub.
I also like to spend time increasing my knowledge of different cultures, foods and the arts. When I have free time I visit galleries, museums, theatre's, restaurants & exhibitions - I don't mind the odd concert or gig too.
*Music tastes - I have an eclectic taste in music and listen to whatever the mood takes me to.
*Favourite travel destination - The Caribbean and in particular Trinidad & Tobago (where previous generations of my family a long time ago originate) - Tobago is paradise! New York is another fave.
*My immediate things I'm doing outside of work - Maintaining my second property in Hove by the sea (maybe retire there one day). Totally revamping my current property in NW London where I live.
*Literature and personal goals - Mainly read/review business/non business related material and content that helps me continue to improve my skills and techniques. Its never a substitute for personal experience and practical application but helps to finesse the areas where I can improve.
*Career - Worked in Change Management and PMO development in Telecoms for over 20 years. Now moved on to Business Consultancy and Strategic Planning/Management. I'm now self employed, contracting with various clients and very happy making that move.
I'm looking forward to meeting someone with similar (or different) views & see how things develop.
Look forward to speaking with you soon.
Conversation Starters (i.e. what you'd like to do on a first date...)
Maybe a coffee/drink, have a chat, let the chemistry do its magic and take it from there?
