Jeff has started, sold and invested in a number of businesses ranging from property investment, management consultancy to entertainment agencies. He started his business career in insurance and banking, one of the few BME professionals working in the City in the 1980’s. After working for HSBC and BAT Industries, he moved into Leadership Coaching and Presentation Training with one of the world leaders Mercuri Goldman in 1987 and this marked the start of his international travelling. The travelling however, had a consequence and Jeff separated from his wife in 1990 and he decided on a fresh start and pursued his passion: the entertainment industry. Although it was exciting times and very useful experience which he still employs today when speaking at events, it was not the long term career for him. On his return Jeff teamed up with an ex colleague and together they formed a small Management Consultancy which ran successfully for a number of years. Jeff eventually sold that business to his partner and went onto work for the next decade, in senior country manager and sales director roles in financial software including IBM UK and Vignette Corp. Following successful periods in senior roles in software companies, Jeff invested into a property and set up a property investment fund in 2002, managing and finally selling the portfolio at almost the top of the market. Jeff was then headhunted back into software in a regional director role in Asia living in Singapore and Tokyo and was then promoted to run North America working from New York, Houston and Toronto significantly increasing his international contact base. On his return to London, Jeff moved back to his investment and software roots and worked in Private Equity, Property and all Alternative Assets where as UK Sales Director at eFront, he became one of the most high profile people in this sector with his team securing 25 out of 26 deals in London in that 5 year period. Jeff has become the “go to guy” in the London investment space and using his unique skill of maintaining contact with senior and passionate people even over 40 years, Jeff’s receptions and weekly events are legendary. He now runs a number of businesses, finding and connecting investors to businesses and setting up his own angel investment fund. In his spare time, he has set up BalancedBoards.net, a portal dedicated to providing diverse and inclusive directors and apprenticeships for global boards. With his passion for business still as bright as ever; he has launched and funded a search for 25,000 Volunteer Mentors around the world to assist and advise business people on making informed decisions in their business lives. Mentor Me is mentoring for everyone on a worldwide basis. This makes the “global cake” bigger for everyone and is a free service for Mentees and voluntarily provided by Mentors.
