Hello, I’m Dean and am really honoured to be the branch leader for Rugby. I was born in Rugby and spent the first 25 years of my life here, attending Ashlawn Secondary and then onto Rugby College. I worked for my family businesses in telecommunications and marketing and then spent 12 years living and working in Birmingham, again in the telecommunications industry. I moved back to Rugby in Dec 2018 to be closer to my family and friends and took over the Rugby Branch in May 2019. I have a keen passion in helping people personally and in business, so being the branch leader means a great deal to me. I always look forward to meeting new people and providing a number of FREE networking events, affordable workshops and business advice/support to business owners in the Rugby and surrounding areas. Because I like to keep busy, I also run a business called Work From Home Network and help individuals earn an additional income through referral marketing and charities/sports clubs and schools with their fundraising. In my leisure time I volunteer as a Cadet Forces Adult Volunteer for the Sea Cadets in Warwickshire and have been lucky enough to travel both the UK and some of Europe in my time with the organisation. I was selected in 2014 to be the adult escort to a group of cadets, spending two weeks in Sweden. My proudest achievement has to been in representing the Sea Cadets on the Thames at the Queens Diamond Jubilee Thames Pageant in 2012. I was in one of the boats that formed a diamond flotilla carrying the Commonwealth flags in front of the Royal Barge. If you’d like to see how I can help you personally or in business, get in touch, I’d love to hear from you! Dean
