Chris Duggleby Media – Transformation, Risk and Lifestyle publications with a focus on health and diversity.

Before moving to media I spent many years in industry managing businesses and companies for one of the world’s largest international business groups. My last overseas business management position was as President of a large Asian chemical manufacturing Joint Venture between BP and a major Chinese Group.

On returning from Asia I was asked to use my first hand experience of business transformation and risk to support BP in its recovery from the Gulf of Mexico disaster. I took on a senior risk management position leading the Group’s design, testing and implementation of new protocols to manage risks associated with Commercial Compliance, Joint Ventures, and Transformation Projects.

You can find out more by using the links below to my business risk websites:

My current activities focus on lifestyle and health. Other media projects are in development (more later). I also have a keen interest in the very long Duggleby Family history which has a separate section on this website dedicated to it.

I hope you enjoy the site.

  1. Hi Chris, was interested in your Ann Duggleby who married Francis Spruce (Spruce is my family history venture). Anything you may have on Spruce family would be appreciated. Kind regards, Rosemary

    1. Hi Rosemary,
      Thanks for contacting. Let me check when I get back to the Alps at the weekend (I keep my archive there). I will let you know shortly.
      Kind regards

  2. Hi Chris I am amazed at how many Dugglebys there are have you by any chance come across seargent major Walter Duggleby from the great world war 1 I am just curious of what he did I have medals but nothing else? If not it’s ok I was just generally enquiring. Many thanks

    1. Hi Liam,
      Great to hear from you. I assume you mean your great grandfather, Walter Duggleby: 1886 to 1970. He is on pages 127 and 128 of the PDF family tree that I published on the site earlier this year. If you are unable to find him – and your other close relatives (the names of the living ones are hidden in the on-line version) please let me know. In the source information used for the tree he was shown on the 1891 census at Cawkell Farm, Watton as a 4 year old son. In 1901 he was identified in the Driffield Grammar School census as a border aged 14 (from Watton). The Kilnwick memorial identified him under item #139 of its Roll of Honour from the 1914-1918 Great War (“DUGGLEBY, Walter, Sergeant East Riding Yeomanry”).
      In addition the Walton Parish Register has his baptism records dated 18th June 1886 (“Walter Duggleby, born 26th April 1886, son of Richard and Rachel Duggleby of Cawkell in Watton, Farmer”).
      His death was registered in Buckrose in 1970.
      He married twice, first to Constance (Connie) Adelaide Ann Speck (1896 – 1932) – they lived at Whitehall Farm, Little Kelk at the time of her death (registered in Driffield) and then in 1937 to Nora Greenley (your great grandmother).
      This is all I have but perhaps one of the other visitors to the site knows more about Walter Duggleby’s activities in the Great War of 1914-1918.
      Kind regards,

    2. Hi Liam, my grandfather was the same one Walter, I remember him in Driffield. My name is Richard Eatwell, I live in Zimbabwe, somewhere there are old photos of him from the great war. probably with my sister in Adelaide. I had his silver fob watch for some years. I was on a yacht with his youngest son, my uncle, John Walter Duggleby in Knysna, s.a, the watch is somewhere e on the bottom of the lagoon. Regards
