Small business matters:
Capitalising on 30 years in management in the engineering industry, including commercial management, production administration, project management, marketing, training and aspects of personnel administration, I have contributed features and business software reviews, mostly to computer magazines. Features have included planning and forecasting, contact management, quality control systems, presentation systems, accounting software and setting up a home office. I wrote a monthly column – James Taylor’s Business Today – on topical business issues for PC Today. I have also contributed to business magazines, including features on choosing computer hardware and software, BACS, couriers, catering, and banks’ services – and a few book reviews.
I have also contributed editorial to national computer magazines, covering both software and hardware/peripherals reviews.
