My Number Plate S11 AVE

During the years 1997 through to 2006, I was at my most active professionally. Barplas matured as a business and grew from 30 to 55 people. This gradually released me to pursue my interests in Design, Marketing, and Business Coaching.

In 1997 I started Imago Innovations, and Designed/Patented/Marketed a new product (For Shaving), it was called the Trip, and worked as a Design Consultant with companies in diverse fields.

The Trip attracted a lot of attention from the Press, and featured in dozens of magazines, newspapers and publications. I was asked to give interviews on Radio, and to the Press. This together with my ability to communicate complex ideas and concepts, to people of varying background led to me being asked to deliver talks on various subjects such as Entrepreneurship, Design, and Innovation, to audiences at Cranfield University (UK), The Institute of Directors, and others.

One venue for example was “The 1998 UK Innovation Lecture Special”. This was a live satellite transmission, and involved Chairman and Founder of Virgin, Sir Richard Branson. The event was staged in front of a live audience of 30,000 people.

The Trip project I had worked on had caught the interest of Prof. Nick Butler OBE RDI, Master of the Faculty of Royal Designers for Industry, and former Professor at the Royal College of Art.

He asked me if I would like to join The RSA  (Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce), and offered to sponsor me as a Fellow of The RSA, and be my referee. this was a great privilege which I accepted and eventually led to my becoming a Fellow of The RSA whose President is His Royal Highness the Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh.
