As an enthusiastic sailor he completed the 2000/2001 Global Challenge yacht race, circumnavigating the world against the wind.

He competed in a transatlantic yacht race in 2009 raising £12,000 and more recently in December 2012 competed in the famous Sydney Hobart Yacht race raising another £11,000 in the process.
John founded JFP 16 years ago. He recognised from his previous business experience when attempting to buy The Champney's Group from Guinness, using one of the Big Four Accountancy Firms, how expensive and time consuming planning and implementation was. He realised that most SME's needed a more cost effective and time effective process. That is what JFP now offers. No Value No Fee.
