A police constable in Smethwick first introduced me to the SUMO book in 2013. We were working on a community project and he was having great success using the SUMO techniques with some young people.
I met Paul in 2014 and since then I have introduced SUMO to countless schools, professionals and organisations I have worked with as a teacher, lecturer, trainer, coach or consultant. I love seeing how SUMO can inspire people and organisations to improve.
As well as having been a senior leader, academic and educationalist for 30 years, I have been a musician and entertainer even longer, and continue to perform as a solo act.
The skills required for the various roles are not that dissimilar! My spare time is devoted to my wonderful wife and two daughters and enjoying our Staffordshire surroundings.
