About the author

I am extremely openminded, read and travel widely and can draw upon a very diverse network globally. This book is the first collation of ideas expressed over many years and I believe it will cut through much of the nonsense imposed in public life by the excessive application of protocol, etiquette and political correctness. One of the reasons behind the success of the OFFLINE dinners is that I allow participants to be vulnerable and release their inhibitions. Nobody stands on ceremony there and nor should they routinely do so in everyday life. I don’t much care where attendees come from or what they may do but I care very much that they are givers, open to fresh ideas and perspectives, curious about the world around them and, most importantly, interested in the lives of others. Live life, live OFFLINE!

Update #4 - Live Life, Live OFFLINE! March 20, 2020

Since you are all relatively confined until the Coronavirus pandemic is over the worst, this seemed as good a time as any to share with you progress about my book. As I intimated previously, I was in US in Feb and met two companies there who are vying to publish it, having seen another previously in London. All three were impressive in their own way and each recommended the ideal time to release it would be Oct/Nov to avoid the crush of new summer and Xmas books. 

One particular aspect of the marketing of the book was to host a series of OFFLINE dinners to promote it. Any gathering of people may prove problematic as I do not know what restrictions might be applied in public spaces. This is an unexpected challenge, since its ethos partly embraces the pleasures of physical engagement. Yet there is a duality to OFFLINE, as it is also designed to encourage you to look beyond and periodically veer away from a more conventional view of life. 

This is a key theme behind the OFFLINE philosophy and over the coming weeks I will aim to share with you snippets from the book, which I hope survive the editorial knife! Meantime, please take good care of yourselves and your families. Regular service in all aspects of our lives has been temporarily derailed by the virus but what matters most is that we elevate the importance of relationships and shared interests for the benefit of the greater good. Snippet one is below:

”I have often hosted OFFLINE dinners and witnessed attendees tiptoeing around the edge of the proverbial swimming pool. Accidentally on purpose, I may give them a nudge and occasionally they fall in. Once you are in the water nobody much cares if you entered in the deep end or shallow nor if your costume is green or red. The only common factor is you are wet. Nobody says I am more wet than you. You are all wet! Far more connects rather than separates us.”
