Welcome to my blog dedicated to topics that interest me professionally. If you already know me personally or professionally then you will know that I have a passion for the topics covered in this site.
If you don’t know me already then you will quickly discover that my areas of interest are retailing, marketing, epos systems and technology. My career to date has mainly been through running Godfrey DIY in East Anglia: A regional independent DIY and garden retailer that built a sterling reputation for good service and value for money. I worked in that business until early 2013 and throughout my time there was involved in all aspects of running a retail business, whether it be on the shop floor, accounting, IT, marketing, or general management. Whilst my experience is very broad I always describe my profession as a retailer when anybody asks.
In recent years I have also been involved in retail technology and co-founded Epos Freedom: a business which markets a cloud-based epos system. My work with Epos Freedom gives me the opportunity to talk to a lot of retailers in many different sectors, and I gain enormous satisfaction in solving many of their issues through Epos Freedom’s great value solution.
I’m also very interested in technology and will use this blog to share my thoughts and experiences in the world of computing and gadgets.
In creating a blog like this I feel very self-conscious that it could be viewed as a massive ego trip on my part. I hope that it does not appear to be as such and I’d be grateful for your comments if any content gets pretentious and out of line with the blog’s true purpose, which is to highlight some of my interests and invite feedback and discussion.
Thanks for reading so far. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss further any of the topics presented here.
