I am Mani (Dr. V Subramanian). I have had varied experience from Engineering industry to Import/Export, Insurance, teaching, managing own companies and as Practice Manager in GP surgeries. My CV is in Section 32.
After retirement, I worked for my wife’s company as Company Secretary, Accountant and as an all ‘odd jobs’ person. Now she has also retired.
I have done voluntary work for Thames Valley Police and for NHS Hospital in Amersham, but I discontinued and spent my time in writing this book the last 2-3 years.
I must admit that when I joined the surgery for the first time, I did not know anything about surgery management but I had years of experience in senior management in several companies in UK, India and USA.
When I visit flower gardens anywhere I have no clue about the type of plants or flowers surrounding me. My know-how at the time of joining the surgery was akin to that but built up surgery know-how and experience quickly over a short period. Unfortunately I cannot say that about my knowledge of plants and flowers even today.
