Heart of BS13 shop


I joined the board of BS13 in the autumn of 2019 and I became chairman in January 2020. My career has been in publishing, 30 years in book publishing and 20 years in online publishing for continuing professional development. I was drawn to BS13 by an article in the Guardian describing its work in helping the community improve diet, nutrition and cooking. I am a keen amateur cook and I thought I might be able to contribute my experience of co-founding and growing two small businesses and running a large division of a multi-national publisher.
