I’m now CEO at Social Investment Business, so any articles can be found via the organisation’s website.

I also continue to write a non-work related book review blog at Dogeared Man (I try to read a book a week)


Previously, I’ve written extensively across a range of media and publications, alongside myriad internal documents and applications / proposals. This has included writing the School for Social Entrepreneurs blog for over 5 years, building it into one of the most credible and influential in the sector, and overseeing all external publications for the organisation in that period. As well as this existing blog since 2011.

More recently, at Social Enterprise UK, I’ve co-authored a wide range of publications and articles, including:
What would an inclusive industrial strategy look like?
Social investment: obstacles, barriers, success?
A social enterprise that does what? #whoknew
Thoughts on the Future of Doing Good
Hopes and predictions for social enterprise in 2017


Leading the World in Social Enterprise
Social Investment Explained
Buy Social Supply Chain Guide

At the previous organisation I worked for, I also edited / co-edited books and publications for mainstream publishers, including the Time Out Book of Country Walks (vol 2), Poem for the Day 2, the Global Ideas Book and 500 Ways to Change the World. Between them, the royalties from these publications have raised tens of thousands of pounds for charitable causes.
