John Harrison

IMG_9326_edited-1-240x300After a brief and inglorious career in sales and marketing, John Harrison started a mail order company with a £500 investment back in 1990 and turned it into the largest and most successful company of its kind in the UK. The Streetwise group of companies is primarily involved in business and financial information publishing, but has branched out into marketing products and services as diverse as health publications, food supplements, electrical goods, self defence products, insurance services, overseas property and residential training courses and workshops.

As a direct consequence of publishing some of the UK’s premier property publications, John has also built a substantial portfolio of residential and commercial property. In recent years, he has also taken a keen interest in the film business and has been executive producer on a number of movies achieving cinema release and starring the likes of Colin Salmon, Parminder Nagra, Neil Morrisey and Kaya Scodelario.

John is the author of seven books and hundreds of articles, almost all devoted to the subject of business success, marketing and self improvement. His books are acclaimed for both their inspiration and their humour and have been compared to the work of such luminaries as Jeremy Clarkson and Matthew Parris.
