After completing the PPE course at New College in 1957 I accepted an invitation to join a London ad agency. Three years later, feeling rather restless and a little adventurous, I moved to Sydney after arranging a post at the local office of the McCann-Erickson agency. After a spell there, followed by one at JWT, I spent three years as research director of News Limited reporting to Rupert Murdoch.
Since then I have been twenty years self-employed in marketing research and am now happily retired, still in Sydney.
My only claim to lasting fame is my book “Marketing Research” - first published by McGraw-Hill in 2002- the second edition of which is still producing a pittance in 2015.
