Meet David

David Caulfield - BA Blog Author

The grey hairs and ‘lived in’ face are testament to forty years in Sales and Marketing, four children, two grandsons and the wait for my now overdue third grandchild. Hopefully as you read this she (yes we know) will have arrived and be part of the family circle.

My father used to tell me about 'the school of hard knocks' and the 'university of life' and now in hindsight I know exactly what he meant.

We each are the sum of our experience, our environment and our expectations and looking back now on the changes I have seen, reminds me of the real excitement of change and challenge.

I remember life 'on the road' before mobiles. I experienced sales and marketing pre-internet, I remember ticker tape and computers that filled whole rooms.

That they tell us was the good old days but while they were in their time interesting, challenging and in many ways enjoyable, the advent of social media, Internet, SEO, CRM, tablets, smart phones and yes, blogging give us all an opportunity to develop strategy, plan effectively and communicate in the moment now that's exciting indeed.

My take on life and my look at business are likely to be slightly different to other bloggers on the site; I hope you find them interesting.

Keep up to date with David
