Additional Information

I have a wealth of expertise in the areas I have noted and can offer both the advice and the funding if necessary to help a company gain maximum exposure and profits.

Apart from the Catering/Foodservice experience I have also been involved promoting and and organising the publicity of the concepts I have been involved in....including launches in the House of Commons and in all the major exhibition centres both in the UK and in North America.

I have also been involved in setting up a consortium to raise over £10m. Lastly I successfully set up a catering franchise, which was totally successful with 35 franchisees covering the whole of the UK, The advice can be purely a one off or on a regular basis.

Living in the Isle of Man also offers plenty of opportunities not normally found on the mainland and if the company can be re-located on the Island then there are even bigger benefits awaiting.

My export/import experience covers Japan, Australia, Italy, Canada and America
