My name is Bob Howlett. I am an electronic engineer and entrepreneur providing intergated marketing solutions for small and micro businesses, as well as performing a consulting role in electronics and IT design, implementation and maintenance for SME's.

Over the years I have been lucky enough to work with many wonderful people on some great projects ranging from providing video coverage of the London's Notting Hill Carnival in the 1980's through maintenance of ITV & Channel 4's TV transmitters at Crystal Palace, South London in the 1990's to providing IT network & infrastructure solutions at various locations in both the US and Europe in the 2000's.

But time marches on, and these days I concentrate mainly on providing marketing solutions for micro businesses, mostly working from my home in Surrey, England. If you would like to find out more about how I can help you and your business please click on the 'Business Consulting' menu above.

In my spare time I have a number of interests which include making my own wine, cooking and entertaining - see my Kitchen link above for some of my favourite recipes as well as other useful bits! I am also interested in monitoring & recording the local weather conditions, and clicking the 'Bob's Weather' link will show you the current and historical conditions here at my home in Surrey - Be patient it takes a while to load!

Another of my interests is music, specifically playing keyboards and organ, but I think it was Kenny Baker who once said of his trumpet playing "I've been trying to do it now for the last 55 years and I think I've just about got the hang of it." In my case it's about 40 years and I still haven't got the hang of it! O well, maybe one day.

Just for fun I have included a couple of other links above; one is a Javascript representation of an antique longcase clock which belongs to my good friend Jim Goode. It was built in around 1850 by William Hayward of Tetbury and I have modelled it as accurately as possible from pictures which I took of the original clock parts. Finally there is a link to some pages about the insane 5.1 valve (tube) amplifier that I designed and built a few years ago.

So; take a look round and I hope you enjoy my website. If you would like to contact me use the link above and thanks for visiting.
