About the Author
Michael Shea holds a PhD in economics. A former diplomat who was seconded to the UK Cabinet Office, he served in Africa, Germany, Romania and New York before becoming Press Secretary to Her Majesty the Queen. He has chaired many public sector organisations and commercial companies, and still sits on numerous boards. All of which has formed an admirable preparation for his active non-retirement, which he also spends as a writer of novels and non-fiction, as a consultant, and as a popular public speaker.
