With a background in marketing, Howard asked every man, women and their dog to spend all their money exploring the world with Lonely Planet, and then, at Save the Children, to instead give that money to some very clever people who, well, save children for a living.
Now, as National Director for febfast, Howard is at pains to point out that he is not the Bar Man’s enemy. Indeed, some of his best friends have worked behind the bar pulling pots and sharing their wisdom.
But now with a young family, busy lifestyle and a metabolism that is no longer 30 years old, Howard is starting to realise that having a drink at the end of a long day is not always the right answer. Whilst this ‘realisation’ is something of a slow learning curve, Howard is braving a whole, new world of abstinence during February.
