I'm a people person and since people are at the heart of most problems, I'm also something of a problem solver!
I'm still a design/consulting engineer at heart, spent 30 years in IT/comms after a mech eng start, worked in virtually every industry, now retired to run a pub in the UKs NE Wales mountains. That pub is now the first pub in Wales to sport a Post Office Local over a bar!
Having bought product to market I'm using my marketing skills and IT abilities to promote the business via our website and social media. I'm a Google+ early adopter and keen to develop it's use for small business and share that experience with the wider community.
I've been reflecting on the above and it occurs to me that these days I am more of a conduit rather than a creative for original thinking, however, I do sometimes have my moments!
