Interview with David Southward

“I was co-founder of Cambridge Consultants which is really the start of the Cambridge phenomenon in 1960 and then subsequently I was technical director at Sinclair Research in the years from 1977-1986.”

In 1960, Cambridge University graduate, Tim Eiloart, set up a small technical consultancy business called Cambridge Consultants and invited his friend and fellow graduate, David Southward, to join him. It was the start of a fascinating career for David who, for the next 40 years, worked and ran many of the UK’s most influential technology companies.  Today David spent time with Richard Sharpe talking about his background and his career.
