Alex trained as a management consultant in London. He left the City to work for a youth development charity in Africa where he spent his time persuading the private sector to engage in rural development. His experience convinced him that the future of the global economy depends upon its ability to integrate the world’s poorest countries.
He got a job as the Balkan correspondent for his local paper, which inspired him to write Slow Winter.
He is now campaign manager for Business for Sterling, the UK’s leading pro-European, anti-Euro campaign. It is a non-party political campaign which represents the 73 percent of UK businesses (according to the latest ICM opinion poll) that want Britain to keep the pound.
Whilst working partly with the Mafia and partly the EU, Alex gains first hand experience of living life amidst the rapid changes of war torn Eastern Europe.
