Retired now, I have spent a long career working in Offshore Oil and Gas in a variety of capacities. Widely travelled and respected for my knowledge and experience, I write on the industry and can give talks or act as a consultant.
I have published widely, most recently producing an acclaimed book, ‘The Sea of Lost Opportunity’:
“absolutely gripping – a real tour de force” – Sir Derek Morris, Former Provost of Oriel College, Oxford and former Chairman of the UK Monopolies and Mergers Commission
Currently, I have I been concentrating on shorter pieces, the most recent of which is a research paper entitled ‘Industrial Policy – Lessons from the North Sea’ for CIVITAS. It was extensively reported in the British media.
