I have recently been appointed as a parent governor. My son, Gregory, has attended Young Epilepsy for a number of years. When I look back at how much Greg has benefitted from his time at Young Epilepsy, I am pleased to have the opportunity to hopefully contribute something in return.
As for my background, I am a chartered accountant, although having grown up and been educated in South Africa and worked for some time in Australia, I believe I do not fit the mould of a typical accountant! I currently head the internal audit department for a major Japanese Bank in the city and my wife Val and I are also trustees of Matthews Friends, a charity established to promote dietary treatment for epilepsy which operates from premises at Young Epilepsy.
