Sam Watkins

I have lived in Sussex all my adult life and have had what I think they call a "Portfolio Career", starting out in Corporate sales at the Grand and the Metropole in Brighton, moving on to store management with Woolworths and then many years in Business travel at American Express.

Following that I was a call centre manager at Domestic and General in Brighton for about 8 years and then Account and Membership Manager at Sussex Chamber of Commerce for three years. For the last three years I have worked mainly as a consultant in Business development in Research and Development Tax credits for various companies and love talking to local businesses and seeing how I can help them meet their goals.
