Hi, I’m Trevor Wood
My Twitter bio says “Entrepreneur, risk taker, husband, dreamer, connector, visionary, enthusiast, optimist, worshipper, pragmatist, encourager, adopted son of the living God” so I guess that’s as good a place as any to start my “about me” bit.
Entrepreneur: I’m a director of Network Midlands. I originally started this company with a friend (whom I later bought out) so that we could organise business networking events in the East Midlands (Leicestershire, Northamptonshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire). In 2013 I merged it with my other company Redline Digital Services was an IT company specialising in Internet consultancy, disaster management and data security. I have now added cyber security services to the portfolio (especially web app penetration testing).
I have also run or co-run two other companies which have now been closed down.
Risk taker: Running a micro business is always a risk 🙂 but I do like to do things that get the adrenalin flowing.
Husband: married to Mary, no kids
Dreamer: I like to imaging the future. I’m also learning to interpret dreams using an ancient Hebraic method.
Connector: I have thousands of business contacts and I’ve been getting a reputation for being the man “who knows someone who can”.
Enthusiast: I’ve been told I have an opinion on everything – that’s not quite true, I only have an opinion on what is important to me – which happens to be a lot of things.
Optimist: I do try to look for the best in most things. I expect things to work out well, and usually they do.
Worshipper: I’m a Christian (more about that later) and I love to spend time worshipping God.
Pragmatist: I won’t compromise my principles, but I also won’t tie myself down to doing things in only one way. If some other way will work, I’ll consider it seriously.
Encourager: I get a buzz out of helping people reach the destiny that they were created for.
Adopted son of the living God: My Christian faith is the most important thing in my life. Jesus died so that I could be forgiven and have a relationship with the living God – a father/son relationship but perfect (unlike the relationship I had with my Dad).
You’ll find out more about me, what I do, who I know, my likes and dislikes, etc. as this blog develops.
