As the only one remaining in sport Paul is leading its growth and development as head of Global VX, the international administrative body for the sport. Paul has an eclectic background, beginning as a teacher of Modern Languages. From there he went back to university to retrain in IT. Having completed his MSc he stayed on to do a PhD. This led him into Knowledge Management and then technology transfer which, in a perfect example of serendipity, led to the creation of VX. Paul left all his other work to focus solely on the development and growth of the sport which has spread rapidly into several countries and enjoys national and international competition.
