Ted has travelled extensively for work and has experience living and working in many cultures. A change of career direction in the early 1990’s whilst working on a horticultural development project for Vanilla production in Uganda, a project which was funded by the African Development Bank / World Bank showed Ted how his education and life experiences could be used in the development of others. It was this experience of working in the development sector that saw Ted return to further education to read for both his BA Hons in Business Studies/Accountancy and his IMBA at Bournemouth University.
