I retired from running the R&D Management Centre at Cranfield University on 30th June 2005. The centre provided training courses which were sold on a purely commercial basis, with no government input. By the time I retired from that, I had run 282 courses, earning £1.97m for the university. Clients came from 800 organisations: companies, universities and laboratories.

I now provide some courses privately, but only in-house. As of My 2007 I have delivered 14 courses for 7 organisations. I also teach a management module for the Cranfield MSc in Automotive Product Engineering and supervise one PhD student in the School of Engineering at Cranfield.

I have started working on environmental matters, aiming to halve the energy use of my house, and I have also resumed my technical speciality of magnetism, working for one of my former PhD students.
