Since retiring from playing Taylor has retained his links with Aston Villa by representing the club in an ambassadorial role and has also provided commentary for their in-house television channel AVTV.

Away from football he has set up IT7 Audio – an extremely successful company which manufacturer and supply a range of high-quality music devices, including headphones and portable speakers.

The company has gone from strength to strength with members of the England football squad and cricket team all using products from the range.

In 2014 he graduated from a PFA funded Corporate Governance course entitled On Board.

The aim of the course is to get more former professional players on to club boards, and make football’s boardrooms more diverse.

He has since gone onto become a director of Global Football Pro which gives aspiring young footballers the chance to play at some of the best football facilities in the UK.
