After taking my degree at Kings College London I joined a small firm of chartered accountants and qualified as a member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) in 1993. I then joined KPMG, specialising in corporate tax, before joining BPP, a professional training company in 1995. I was appointed the managing director of BPP Newcastle in 1997 and successfully established the new branch over the next 5 years. In 2003 I joined Newcastle University.
