Now heading up a new training outfit in Dubai and have clients across the ME region.

Got any kids?
Two boys - one six and one ten months... Not here yet - arriving September once I'm sorted...

Hobbies?
Socialising, frustrated ex rugby player, get a reasonably regular game of golf.

Whatever else
Happy to meet as many interesting people as poss - considered decision to come here for quite some time - not going anywhere so any advice gratefully received!!!

And yes, realise I put my name on my profile not knowing it couldn't be changed. You can call me Pieman

Cheers


Dan
welcome
