He is a member of The Gog Magog Golf Club and an active member of the Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union. John was part of the steering group which guided the merger of the English Golf Union (EGU) and the English Women’s Golf Association to create England Golf. He also played a key role in running national amateur golf championships, having been Chairman of the EGU’s Championship Committee and a referee for well over 10 years.
John spent his business life as an industrial relations and management specialist, after studying at Cambridge University and being called to the Bar. He joined the conciliation service, ACAS, soon after its launch in the mid-1970s, when the country faced many industrial relations issues. After 11 years he formed his own consultancy and training business, from which he retired seven years ago.
