Provincial Grand Communications Officer
Grae was born in Wensleydale in 1970. After completing an apprenticeship as a printer in the Yorkshire Dales, he moved south to London and embarked upon a 20 year career in the printing and publishing industry. He is old enough to remember the introduction of emails and PDF’s into the business world and saw how the print and publishing industry change irrevocably as a result. In 1998 he married his wife Sarah and they have raised two daughters in Winslow, Buckinghamshire. Grae completed an Executive MBA at Brookes in Oxford in 2014 and set up a consultancy business shortly thereafter. Grae is now a business trainer and leadership coach, helping owners of small businesses to build better business models. He also delivers online workshops on Project Management, Lean Manufacturing and Business Model Innovation from his new home in Lincolnshire.
