Serving as a justice of the peace for 20 years has taught the author valuable people and decision-making skills that have helped him make a success of his business. He says although he is proud to have grown his training company from scratch to a £ 2 million business, he could not have done it without what he had learned as a justice of the peace. He says magistrates are trained in structured decision-making techniques and in weighing up evidence to arrive at life-changing decisions. The parallels with business are obvious.
