CPD Record

Since 1989 when I bought my first computer I have engaged in almost continual personal and professional development.

Between 1992 and 2006 I regularly read computing journals including Computer Weekly and Computing.

Between 1994 and 2000 I undertook a part time BSc in Business Information Systems.

Between 1999 and 2009 I was a member of the Chartered Management Institute and was a Chair of the local branch. I regularly read articles in Management Today.

Between 2000 and 2004 I subscribed to Harvard Business Review and read pertinent articles on management strategy and learning and development.

Between 2000 and 2003 I subscribed to Fortune and had a letter published.

I have been a member of LinkedIn and a regular contributor to a number of groups since 2009.

For a period of years between 2002 and 2010 I subscribed to and contributed to Training Journal.

I have been a subscriber to TJ online since 1999.
