When I was five years old my parents moved to Nigeria and that was the start of a life spent overseas. Further postings for the family were in Ethiopia, Cyprus and Kuwait, quite a mixture and I failed to learn the languages.
As for myself, I have been employed since I was 17. I started at Barclays Bank International, then went to Gerrard and National Discount House and Harrods before some potential army officer training at the Guard’s Depot. But the bulk of my banking career was with the Bank of Bermuda, based in Bahrain and Dubai from 1986 to 2008.
Thank you for reading and posting your comments, I do very much appreciate that.
