After a distinguished 25 year police career in the UK where I was the intelligence officer for the Commercial Fraud Squad I retired from the service. Then I first became a business consultant in the UK in 1992. In 2000 I attained my Masters in Strategic Management from the Business School of the University of Central England. In 2003 I moved to Canada and created Blade Consultancy in the rural town of Morden, Manitoba. Through Blade I provide a wide range of services including writing business plans and lightweight workshops and seminars. I am a part time instructor at Red River College, Winkler, Manitoba where I teach various business studies courses.
