I am a retired company director of my own company, JBGS Brent Ltd, which provided services to school governors in the London Borough of Brent. I also helped to create the Brent Schools Partnership, a company which continues to provide training services to schools.
A parliamentary candidate for Hull Central 1979, and for Beverley 1987, I served as a Liberal or Liberal Democrat councillor on Hull City and Humberside County Councils in the 1980s, and more recently LB Camden from 2002-2014, where I was Executive Member for Children for two years and Chair of the Health Scrutiny Committee for six years.
A member of the Club’s Marketing & Communications Committee, I was also Vice-Chair of the recent Rules Revision Working Group. (John joined the Club in 2018 and was elected to Gen Cttee in 2019)
