After leaving University in 2009 with a degree in English and Journalism, Tom went backpacking around India, Nepal, Australia and Thailand to discover himself – finding a deep love for adventure, fun and culture along the way. On his return, he went back to University to study for an MA in Journalism, combining his studies with his love of music. Over a 13 year period, Tom would DJ at weekends in clubs from Manchester to London, Ibiza to Moscow – loving every minute.
Professionally, Tom spent 10 years working in the Recruitment sector, where he built an excellent reputation as a specialist IT Consultant, eventually becoming a Business Manager, leading sales teams responsible for £8m annual turnover for global and SME organisations moving to London and Manchester. At its peak, Tom’s sales team was at 18 people, ranging from Junior Consultants to Principals, Managers and Team Leaders.
