Passions


If you’re an inventor you are passionate by nature. You need to have extreme conviction in your abilities, together with vision, in order for your concepts to become commercial realities.

It’s not good enough to just have ideas. You need to build a prototype and then from that you can produce a commercial model that’s a success.

I have many passions in my life, particularly my flight record – I’ve been a pilot for 60 years – and my love of adventure and the natural world. I have a love for inventions and then turned these into commercial business successes.

Thanks to my business endeavours, I’ve been able to invest in good causes through various channels and in some cases giving back to the institutions that helped nurture my abilities many years ago.
