He is the current Great British Entrepreneur of the Year for Service Industries and can be often found speaking on gender equity and menopause in the workplace.

  • His experience growing up as an undiagnosed autistic Black boy, including his struggles to fit in and find role models
  • His eclectic career path that led him to entrepreneurship
  • How he helps organizations improve employee well-being in the workplace – what that means, why it’s important for employee retention, talent development and a healthy workplace culture – and why organizations need to “Show, not Tell” when it comes to inclusion
