I am a community leader and a business management consultant with over 20 years experience; ranging from small and medium enterprise development, advice, mentoring, training, and management consultancy services covering public, private and voluntary sectors.

I have worked on a significant number of social and economic development projects and policy initiatives relating to employment, enterprise, international development, community empowerment and social inclusion such as the New Deal Self Employment Option, National Neighbourhood Renewal Initiative, National Neighbourhood Nurseries Initiative, school and college mergers, Black History Month, Youth economic empowerment initiatives, etc.

I became a Labour Party member because of its ethos on fairness, tolerance, equality and social justice. These ideals are very core to my personal belief; and which I’m prepared to devote the rest of my life defending!
