Michael Julien

My main business has been the provision of business and financial advice to a number of major U.K. companies. For ten years I was a non-executive director of Guinness PLC until the merger, on 17th December 1997, of Guinness PLC and GrandMet PLC whose combined business is now known as Diageo plc.

In addition, I was non-executive Chairman of First Choice Holidays PLC from 1993-1997 and Chief Executive of Storehouse plc from 1988-1992.  I retired from Storehouse in 1992 on medical advice and, following my 60th birthday, I gave up all my non-executive directorhips and fully retired from public company life.  See my CV for further details of my career: CV

As I had been an active user of the internet for several years and, after retiring from public company life had become even more interested in the internet, I invested in "" and  “” and “Oxford Professional Training”.  The investment in has now been sold after the company was acquired by a new investor group and Oxford Professional Training based in China has now merged with the Aston Educational Group in Hong Kong. 

In March 2016, I decided to make an investment in a newly formed private company called Midnight Circus Films Limited who are presently producing a feature film called “Love Type D” and is the first feature film from award-winning writer and director, Sasha Collington. Here is a link to the website for this new film: Love Type D.

I have now published an article on the EU referendum in the UK.  See this link for the article: Fair Observer.

Whilst researching my family background, I created a short information page about my great-grandfather Edward Richard Woodham who was one of the survivors of the Charge of the Light Brigade and who later became Chairman of a Committee set up by the survivors of the Charge to organise a reunion dinner at the Alexandra Palace in London.  The proceedings of the dinner were fully reported in the Illustrated London News of 30th October 1875.

In addition to my English roots, I am also half French as my father's parents were both French.  My grandfather came to the UK from Pont L'Évêque in Normandy as a very young man and settled in Sheffield (where he became manager of the Berlitz school of languages) and met my grandmother who came from Pleaux in the Cantal.  My brother married a French barrister (Colette Kaplan) and lived in Paris until his death in January 2006.

To contact me, please leave a message on my call forwarding service and I will get back to you:  +44 7092 040900.

I am Norwegian, I should like to introduce you to the beauty of my own country.  Norway is small in population, at 4 million people, but large in terms of surface area.  The great curving expanse of Norway occupies the western half of the Scandinavian peninsula, stretching well over one thousand miles from Stavanger in the southwest to frozen Finnmark in the Northeast, well above the Arctic Circle.   Most of Norway's eastern border is shared with Sweden, though in the north both Finland and Russia are immediate neighbours.   Click here for:  Norwegian Online Information Service
