John founded the Bird Watching & Wildlife Club in 2008. As someone who was interested in wildlife but not an expert he felt there were millions of people like him that weren’t being catered for. There are Golf Hotels, Fishing Hotels, Shooting Hotels, Scuba Diving Hotels, so why not Wildlife Hotels?
A Solicitor by profession John was the founder of Moneyfacts Group plc - the UK’s leading provider of interest rate data. He is well known as a National Speaker on financial issues.
John was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Civil Law from the University of East Anglia in 2005.
