John Harrison BSc: Treasurer
John’s long business career commenced with some 15 years in finance and corporate planning within major international businesses. He then became a consultant in business strategy working on a variety of projects both in the UK and overseas. This included working with World Bank projects in China for 5 years.
At the same time John was developing a second career as an author. This involved writing books on finance and success strategies in developing organisations as well as educational courses for Henley Management College, the NHS, the BBC and various other organisations.
John’s awareness of the issues faced by those with acquired deafness was brought into focus by his mother-in-law who lived with him and his wife for the last 4 years of her life. This is a major reason why he was keen to support Hearing Link when offered the opportunity to do so in 2013.
John is married with three adult daughters, one of whom lives in New York and one in Sydney. This provides him with a good excuse to travel, while his UK-based grandchildren keep him grounded in every sense. He is aiming to support Hearing Link’s continued development as an efficient and effective organisation using his wide experience of what works in business (and what doesn’t!).
