We have established systems in the waste and recycling management industry, inventory tracking (motor trade) and E-commerce, and property related business (such as estate agencies and chartered surveyors.

I began my career in the motor trade in 1984, at a family owned Ford dealership in Tunbridge Wells. After four years I moved to a larger, plc, still in the motor trade. I left the industry from a directors role in 2001 - by now based in the North East of England. My members of those years are fond. It was fun, competitive, and rewarding.
In 2002 I decided to take a break from that world, and took a number of consultancy assignments. I became involved in the rapidly emerging world of E commerce and technology.
In a way, I am still on that break - although still involved in the motor trade as a supplier. Now I am working in three businesses - OrangeTree Online (a technology business), and Badmintonalpha (who supply sports equipment and clothing for people who play Badminton), and finally, Orangezone.co.uk , a retailer of clothing and footwear.
And I still do business consultancy, too.
Paul's knowledge of business, and his practical advice, have been extremely valuable in my journey over the last eight years. When I want to understand my strategy better, and how to implement it, I often ask Paul.
Sensible and rational outspoken opinion, based on fact. Without people like Paul, the forum wouldn't be worth a look in.
