Simon Guest

Personal Introduction:

As a father of 2 young boys I am extremely conscious of the world in which my sons will grow up in. Thus if it is possible to use my skills to make a small contribution to changing the behavior of businesses or the public and thus helping to make our country and the world we live in a safer, more equal, vibrant and productive environment, then I would like to volunteer my services to any organisation or cause with these goals. I grew up in working class part of Manchester and I firmly believe that some people start out in life with considerably less opportunity to better themselves than others. So I feel compelled to help those trapped by circumstance, poverty or their social environment, to have a chance at future success and happiness.
