Registration is entirely voluntary and can be done now or in the future, as needs may arise.

Those who are still working as business owners or employees who are willing to provide knowledge of their industries or commercial activities, or who have mentoring or career change counselling experience, which they would be willing to provide, are also invited to email their names, telephone numbers, emails and a summary of what they have to offer to David Lyon, jdrl@btinternet.com.
