About John Smith

John at his desk near Newark Notts

John Smith had a working life spanning fifty years divided equally between commerce and consultancy. He is still active as a financial director, accountant and strategic adviser. John is also an active trader on the UK and USA stock market. Who better to get behind the money headlines and de-mystify the stock market for the small investor.

It is one thing having a name or having made your name. But how does an ordinary John Smith born to a small tenant farmer of poor coal-riddled soil in unfashionable Derbyshire become a qualified accountant and work as a management consultant for the mighty Price Waterhouse?
