Paul Buck is the founder of EPIC Problem Gambling Consultancy, the primary consultancy providing education, prevention, identification and support in the area of gambling. EPIC works with clients including the armed forces, large corporations, government departments and professional sports organisations. Paul suffered and overcame a gambling disorder which cost him £5m. He had what he describes as a 'very normal' background, with education through to degree level, and then worked in a senior role in financial services (a recognised high-risk occupation for gambling). He suffered his addiction for eight years while he was doing this job. He now brings to bear his combination of personal experience and senior management background with EPIC. He is the father of three young children.
