A long time ago... far far away... STOP

Well, it was a long time ago that I worked under the banner of CBCM.  This was a time of developing a customer base that centred on providing support and delivery for implementing, changing or managing business and commercial requirements.

CBCM is Catalyst to Business and Computer Management 

CBCM, Catalyst to Business and Computer Management. No longer operational and provided the platform for much of my freelance contract work with a wide range of businesses Commercial, Manufacturing, Distribution, and Industrial.

My interests have change somewhat in these intervening years and whilst I am often faced with confusion from those expecting to make a link to my current work, there is a good deal of overlap.  Whilst not completely accurate, describing my (work) being a catalyst offers the consistent element over time and is desriptive of my current pychotherapy function as a Gestalt Therapist

CBCM is active, but not proactive.  Redirection to this page has been created as a means to give recognition to this domain.  I hold this domain with sentimentality only.

My work today is the mainsite that hosts this page click the logo:
