Co-Founder, Redington, Mallowstreet & 10k Black Interns
United Kingdom
I am a British Ghanaian Entrepreneur, passionate about helping people to discover their true potential. I qualified as a barrister of Lincoln's Inn in 1987 before switching careers to investment banking where I pioneered a new form of risk management for pension funds which has become the industry standard. In 2006, I co-founded Redington, the UK's leading independent pensions consultancy; also Mallowstreet, an AI-powered think tank for the financial services industry; and 10,000 Black Interns, a charitable foundation securing 10,000 internships for undergraduates of Black Heritage. In 2018, I was named Black British Entrepreneur of the Year and I currently sit on the Prime Minister's Business Council. Using my Spellbound programme, I teach prison inmates how to speak with confidence to a roomful of their peers about who they really are and the people they want to be. I am also on the Boards of Mission 44 and Somerset House.
