Picture of Harry Cole


HARRY COLE is Business Consultant and European Licensing Practitioner, specialising in the protection and marketing of Intellectual Property, and established for over 26 years.


Harry is the consummate Entrepreneur. After serving 2 years in the Armed Forces in North Africa, he joined a firm of Surveyors in Winchester. This led to many senior managerial positions and finally culminating in becoming an entrepreneur. During the mid 70's Harry developed and owned 3 night clubs in the South of England, including his favourite and most popular ZOOTS. Discotheque. Harry's musical passion is JAZZ and playing Tenor Saxophone. Owning a Club, gave Harry the opportunity of being able to practice and play his Saxophone whenever he wanted ,without fear of anyone asking him to leave the premises! He named his first Club ZOOTS after his idol, "Zoot Sims" the American (Saxophonist) whom he regards as a legend on par with Lester Young, Stan Getz and the great Coleman Hawkins, all musical giants of their day. And as for Harry, his club days are over , but he is still practicing on his long suffering Saxophone!

Harry is married to Patricia, his beloved wife of 40 years and is blessed with three wonderful sons Terry, Gary and Lee from his former wife and two dear grandsons. Daniel & Joshua.
